  • Creativity - should we encourage it?

    That depends on where you live, how old you are and your perspective on life, the role of schools and the workplace. Ken Robinson has likened the school system as a production line preparing its children as a product ready to take their place in the industrial world (1). He has also highlighted in 2007 that many of the jobs our primary children are heading for have not been created yet (2).
