Creativity and the Hierarchy of the Subjects

May 31, 2010

I believe that schools teach children to be less self-directed and passionate, and Ken Robinson says something very similar in this video: that schools teach children not to be creative.

The hierarchy of subjects in schools worldwide: math and language at the top, the humanities in the middle, and the arts at the bottom, is mostly a product of the fact that our school system was developed during the industrial revolution, when efficiency and productivity were important, and not creativity.
