What is creativity in the school environment? Wikipedia
defines creativity in education as “a way for students to be encouraged to
problem solve when faced with a challenge…Instead of being taught to reiterate
what was learned”.  But, nowadays,
schools seem to do more to harm creativity than to foster it. Education in
general has been impacted by the standards and testing culture like all other
disciplines, and in a lot of ways, we’ve been focusing on teaching things that
are concrete. Things like math, science, and history. But, at the end of the day
we’re teaching things that we can test and assess. The worst part is that
students spend high school learning things that they don’t care for, and when
they finally leave high school and go out in the real world, they have no idea
what they want to do, because most of their lives people have been telling them
what one “needs” his or her whole life. In reality, the world is demanding to
innovative and creative minds to drive this nation forward. Thus, in order to
change, we must have a shift in mindset.

 We as a school system
need more forms of education which really speak to each student’ individual
ability. Students are living in a world of immense changes of growing complexity
and interconnection. You as educators must ask yourselves: What sort of
education do you need for students to flourish in this world? The answer I’m
arguing for is a more natural way of learning; which is for people to learn
mixed together (sophomore can take senior classes or vice versa). The current
systems of education in most countries were developed in the 19th century
bringing up students as if they were machines. These systems aren’t designed to
mold themselves around individual differences, they’re based largely on
conformity and efficient. But, with the action of reshaping school around the
better ways in which people really learn, leaving kids without the impression
of a “one size fits all” learning style.
