Nobody can predict what our world will look like in 10 or even 5 years time. It can be explained by the speed with which technologies advance, economy grows or population of our planet increases. According to Sir Ken Robinson, our task is to be prepared and prepare our children to whatever that future can bring. That is why creativity has a great importance in education now.
People come to this world with a variety of talents and have enormous abilities to innovations in childhood. However, Sir Ken Robinson insists that this situation drastically changes when children come to school. The reasons are hidden inside of the educational system. It is based on the level of academic ability and promotes the idea that making mistakes is the worst thing that can happen. Consequently, it puts limitations on our perception of the world and restricts our creativity. From my point of view, if you are not prepared to be wrong, you will never get an original idea. Every educational system in the world has the same gradation of priorities in education. For example, mathematics and languages always take the first place, while art, music or dance have less priority. This system was built in the 19th century is not appropriate for contemporary world.
Overall, I completely agree with Sir Ken Robinson that the present educational system kills creativity of children. By judging only academic abilities, schools could limit creative capacities of children who, for example, are more talented in art than in mathematics. I think we cannot lump everyone together. From my point of view, schools need to be reformed in order to educate a many-sided person who can face whatever comes in his/her future.
