no.42 Do schools kill creativity?

I had a great story recently, and I love telling it, a little girl she was at a drawing lesson, she was six, she sit at the back and drawing. the teacher went to her and said:'what's you drawing?', and the girl said "I'm drawing a picture of God" and teacher said:'but nobody know what's god look like." and the girl said:' they would in a minute.' -Sir Ken Robinson

" I'm not saying wrong is same thing be creative, what we do know is if you're nor prepared to be wrong, you never come up with anything original." -Sir Ken Robinson

Sir Kenneth Robinson is an English author, speaker and international advisor on education in the arts to government, non-profits, education and arts bodies. He was Director of the Arts in Schools Project (1985–89) and Professor of Arts Education at the University of Warwick (1989–2001), and is now Professor Emeritus at the same institution.[1] In 2003 he was knighted for services to art.

First thing he is so funny, and then what he said about not afraid being wrong is what I'm struggle with constantly.
