What are your thoughts concerning schools offering classes that teach creativity and promote innovative thought?

I found it ironic as I was sorting through TEDtalks as part of a project for a class titled "Creativity and Business Innovation" to find this talk titled "How schools kill creativity". The textbook for the class, The Innovator's DNA by Jeff Dyer, Hal Gregersen, and Clayton Christiansen, offers great insight into proven similar thought processes and behavior patterns found in successful innovators and entrepreneurs. Though I have found the class to be extremely insightful, I feel that there must be some debate about whether or not creativity and innovation is something that can be given a grade. What are your thoughts?
