Do Schools Kill Creativity?

This is a talk worth watching. Some of my favorite quotes:
  • "Creativity is as important in education as literacy."
  • "Kids will take chance. If they don't know, they'll have a go. Am I right? They're not frightened of being wrong. Now I don't mean to say that being wrong is the same thing as being creative. But what we do know, is that if you are not prepared to be wrong - you'll never come up with anything original. If you're not prepared to be wrong. And by the time they get to be adults, most kids have lost that capacity. They have become frightened of being wrong."
  • "We are educating people out of their creative capacities."
