“Sit down, open your book, do question number 40”. Sounds familiar? This is the problem with our education system. School has been killing creativity ever since it began.
Our current education system, which focusses on standardization, disregards that we are all unique and different. There is little or no assistance to find passions and interests. There is no room to find what children are good at and want to do. And so a great deal of talent and potential goes unrecognised.
A popular quote attributed to Albert Einstein, says: Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
