Bharti Rao: Do Schools Kill Creativity?

The Education System is based on the idea of Academic ability. Whether it is home or school everywhere you hear that if you want to get a job you need to show your academic ability; you need to have a degree. But this is not true, today if we go to see we see thousands of youngsters sitting unemployed at home. This is all due to Academic inflation. Degrees are worthless.

Current Education needs to change its role in the light of increasing importance being accorded to creativity. Steps in schools are being taken for the implementation of creativity in education.  In today’s world creativity is an important aspect of teaching and learning. Creativity is necessary for personal, economic, cultural and social reasons. It is not necessary to obtain success you need to have Academic Excellence. A child when born has some talent or capability and he can obtain success through his this talent or capability.

Creativity isn’t a test to take, a skill to learn, or a program to develop. Creativity is seeing things in new ways, breaking barriers that stood in front of you for some time. Creativity is the ability to make dreams come to life. In the education system, it is just a cycle of sitting still, memorizing, testing and getting jobs. Very few people have tried to challenge this and those who have done have made all the difference in their life like Albert Einstein, Walt Disney etc. Schools in today’s world need to implement more innovative and creative methods so that they may not destroy the fascinating and curious minds.
