Do schools kill creativity? 

Ken Robinson thinks so. He is a well known British author and expert in educational creativity. 

Robinson believes creativity is as important in education as literacy, and should be treated with the same status.

 “What we do know is, if you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original — if you’re not prepared to be wrong,” said Robinson. “And by the time they get to be adults, most kids have lost that capacity. They have become frightened of being wrong. And we run our companies like this. We stigmatize mistakes. And we’re now running national education systems where mistakes are the worst thing you can make. And the result is that we are educating people out of their creative capacities.”
