Do you really think school kills creativity ..???
I think, of what most kills creativity, is the mechanics concepts of the binary answers, the "yes or no". You are wrong or right, correct or incorrect, better or worst. In a example: In a need to know if the children is learning, the schools makes questions to the students to see if they hold that knowledge. It reveals the students who learned more. Of course, when you are correct, you are better than the other who answered it wrong. Well, is that really obviously? The way that each one learn is a little different to the others, maybe much different in some cases. The concept that the correct answer is better, is the real deal. It could be, or could not. And why not the two things at the same time? (Imagine a school) if I had make a question of "What color is the sun?" This class(with 3 kids) is teaching 3 colors this day; blue, yellow and green. The answers was: Bryan: "Yellow" John: "Green-Green" Robin: "I dunno." ... Should be easy to us make the judgment that just Bryan got it right. Right? Surprises...Robin remember a remarcable trip with her dad, they saw a beatiful sunset and the sun was red(diferent from the yellow). And Jonh? Green is kind a strange, most of the teachers(also you and me) would say he's wrong and that is it. Think if Jonh is daltonic? Still makes no sense, because daltonic only confuses red with green. Neither that do not explain "green-green", but Jhon uses to play with his father's oil ink and he remember the orange color made by using red + green, and he thinks the sun is orange. Who knows? Who is better? Who is more creativity? This short story i've made is to explain that, the creativity is there, and we can kill it in the moment we create the ideia of someone as he has to be, not what he is. It do not happens just in schools. Each one of us is a lot creativity, in different ways. What happens is that we forget it when we start the concept of better. There is no better, just different. Thanks. xD
