Is Education Killing The Creativity?
Getting into my practical and professional life, I have realized various things about education which I would like to discuss here. It is my opinion and I would like everyone to add or contribute their valued opinion about it.
We are made to follow certain rules since class 1. Most importantly, the timing we follow at school creates a foundation for our work routine at professional life. All our productivity lies on the time we are made to adapt since childhood, that is, 9 to 1.
Second part is punishments that follows not following the policies. There is a punishment for getting late, scolding if we add another dimension to the debate and etc.
Hence, while working for organizations in practical life, I am fearful of sharing my innovative ideas. Most of the times, it gets difficult for me to implement out-of-the-box thinking. I don’t blame education, but the way we are provided with education is killing the creativity of the individual.
However, one of my colleague holds an online university degree and has been influential in brainstorming sessions. He told me that online education is very different to traditional education and it appreciates broad thinking. Reference: http://www.pcu.edu/
In short, is education or education system killing the creativity?
