“It’s a simple and generous rule of life that whatever you practice, you will improve at.”

Ken Robinson: Do Schools Kill Creativity?

I make straight As on every report card. Everyone thinks I am smart, but that doesn’t show how smart I am, that shows you I have learned how to play my teachers’ games. I don’t remember any of the stuff.

“If we fail to understand creative thinking, we cannot hope to have an educational system that will provide creative individuals.”

​”There’s a specific thing that school wants you to shine in (academics/testing) and if you don’t shine in that, you don’t shine at all. It’s like they are trying to make us all the same people.”
-Erin, junior HS student, California
