Kiersten Thomsen Posted over 4 years ago Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity? Beth, I also became sad while listening to Sir Ken Robinson. Just listening to him talk about education and what it looks like on the outside looking in, made me feel sad and almost ashamed that education has become this way. In a sense I feel embarrassed about what education has come to value. However, at the same time, I am also determined because I do not want my students to go through school without learning to be creative. To me, that would be the worst failure. So, even though phy. ed., music, and art may be pushed out of school I will find a way to keep that alive in my classroom because students need that education; they need to have the experience of the arts because that will help them find their talents and learn to appreciate what others may love. They will learn to use their creativity which will benefit them in the future, because who knows what our future will bring. We must prepare our students for whatever they may face in the future.
