  • Oct 15 2013: I believe Ken Robinson's point is that schools (not education) kill creativity.

    The problem is that the standardized, "one size fits all" approaches of many schools screen only for certain talents. Other talents are often suppressed and never allowed to develop. This is how creativity is killed.
    It not only harms the students whose talents are screened out, it harms all of us.
