Do schools kill creativity?

Dear all,
Light up your creativity

I believe we all have had the experience of feeling 'misplaced' some times in our lives; when you don't really fit in.

If you are fortunate, you might find someone, or an environment, along your journey in life that welcome you the way you are, and trust and motivate your capabilities.

Sir Ken Robinson gives a wonderful insight on how our education system, our society, can kill one of our most precious gift, our creativity.

In his own words:
"Creativity is important to education as literacy. 
We should give it the same status."

He also says, "if you are not prepared to be wrong you will never come with something original."

And I would add, "if you are not prepared to be wrong you will never let yourself be free and grow."

It is time to all of us to liberate ourselves and enjoy the gift of just be.

Enjoy the talk.
