Hi Leena

Thanks for the great post. I agree that not enough is being done in schools to give children time┬áto develop their creative skills. There is too much focus on outcome and achievement that the act of being creative with no constraints is not seen as valuable. I’m guessing it all comes down to funding. The schools that are seen as better are the ones that produce more successful students. I think the perception of success needs to change in schools so less pressure is put on students to constantly achieve. Students need time to┬ádiscover how they can be creative and to develop those skills before life gets in the way.
