Do School's Kill Creativity?

Saw this and just had to post it.  It's a bit long but worth the time.  I love the comment "If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never  come up with anything original."  I've seen it so many times with the students I work with.  It's a tradgedy when kindergarteners are afraid to experiment and use their imaginations because they're already afraid of making a mistake.  Sadly this is from 2006 and I think things have gotten worse instead of better.   All the schools I've worked in have to teach to the test.  Hopefully change will come.
