Fix the education system by changing the learning model to make students more creative, motivated, productive, and personal.
How can "Those if-then rewards often destroy creativity... The secret to high performance isn't rewards and punishments, but that unseen intrinsic drive -- the drive to do things for their own sake. The drive to do things cause they matter." from Dan Pink, be used in the education system to not kill creativity, from Ken Robinson? I think this if-then reward system is extremely exaggerated in schools, and a better education system could result from a change to more Results Only Work Environment, the ROWE, where there are not schedules, classes, or meetings. The student then defines their own school: when to come to school and what to learn based on curiosities and interests. This can drive up most students’ motivation for school, their creativity in school, and their overall productiveness.
