Have a listen to an extremely interesting and amusing talk given by sir Ken Robinson at a TED conference in 2007 about creating an education system that nurtures, rather than undermines, creativity. I for one agree with him on the matter that all school systems put a big price on subjects like mathematics and science and ignore more creative ones. I’ve never heard of drama lessons or dance classes being taught in regular schools and I know that music and arts are being neglected in most places. Being intelligent doesn’t only mean being good at maths, intelligence is diverse and dynamic and I don’t think most teachers realize that.
