Do you really think school kills creativity ..???

Everyone always wants to say that, but I think creativity rests within the person. School doesn't make up all of a child's day, so whether they want to expand they're creativity is solely up to them. In most schools, art Is a mandatory class. So to blame the schools for a lack of creativity is more of a way to push of the responsibility of generations of people who weren't interested in helping themselves and they're children become more creative.

If you want to have a good education you must study in a private school but that will cost me a fortune. Even if you study at a public school, some teachers are really great. Teachers could inspire their students and instill in them confidence and creativity. It depends on the school and the teachers.
