Education versus Creativity: School Kills Creativity
Someone once mentioned how people that study go to school loose all creativity, they study a specific subject and lose imagination and innovation. All they know is that subject and do not try to further educate their brains and learn other things that matter in life. An example of this is you see people studying Math all their lives, but talk to them about politics, they won’t know! This is to say that education does kill creativity and many of us are victims of it.
This is not to say that education is not important. Education is important for everyone, your parents put you in school to get educated and grow. However one thing is important to understand which many of us miss. Creativity is just as important as literacy. People are afraid to be wrong, therefore they grow out of creativity because they never try anything, fearing to be wrong. It is crazy how Ken Robinson brings something important to our attention. Every student these days learns the same thing, and subjects that raise creativity are not recommended: subjects such as Music, Art, and more subjects are not highly qualifying in school because they are not Math, Science, and other subjects that make money in the future. These are serious issues and children take them to heart. They hear their parents putting their dreams down because ‘it won’t work out’, ‘it wont make of them anything’. What happens then? They settle what society wants of them, breaking their creative mind and pushing them to unhappiness. The norm is the 9 to 5 government job. Society tells us to make the ‘right choice’ and settle for a government job because that will assure you a safe net. This grows fear inside you and you begin thinking their right. Taking the chance on your own business is no longer an option because ‘you can be wrong’ and everything can backfire. Creativity is life’s main keys, if you have lost creativity you have nothing left. I STRESS this to everyone out there, TAKE CHANCES… You only have one life to live, and if you don’t live this one, your life was pretty much useless.
