Is the American education system taking creativity away?

Updated on October 25, 2019

Creativity is sorely needed within our educational system today and in the future. Today the curriculum and the way subjects are now being taught raises some questions whether creativity is disappearing within our educational system. It not only involves creativity but providing opportunities for students at any level to think for themselves about issues being taught within their respective school systems.

The leaders of tomorrow need to be able to think for themselves and have the ability to be creative within the segment of society in which they will eventually become a part. All of us have the creativity bug within us and our school systems must encourage the creative juices to improve the knowledge and capability to succeed either in college or the workplace. Today our educational system seems to have become one of indoctrination rather than teaching. This needs to change.

The students who will become the leaders or tomorrow must be able to provide the talent and creativity businesses of today and into the future will need and what those needs may be is yet to be seen. Creativity is a key ingredient and has been throughout our history as new products are developed which provide incentives for others to develop their creativity. Part of the problem appears to be that the right to free speech is suppressed in many educational institutions which can be seen in news events as individuals are prevented from speaking on various topics. The topics appear to be in disagreement with the philosophy or perspective of individual educational institutions, e.g. colleges.

Students at all levels in an education institution whether public, private or business. Business for example needs input from individuals who work for them to resolve issues within their individual companies. Innovation is the key in the global economy and students must have the knowledge, capability and freedom to take an outside the box approach to help companies grow. From media reports when or if they provide the facts project an environment where innovation has little if any influence in the lives of students.

When our country began there were many individuals who brought with them talents that still exist today. These talents and expertise over time exhibited innovation by improving processes for getting things done. One prime example was the development of the industrial revolution, a major impact on our country. This is only one example and there are many others which are too numerous to name. This kind of environment needs to exist today in our educational institutions not the current environment being exhibited in news reports.
