The Creativity Crisis

I am a little behind on my blogging, but an article from July 10 Newsweek (still available on their web site) is so important that it warrants attention. The problem that the article talks about is the poor scores on creativity that today’s U.S. K-12 kids exhibit. We are one of the few G-20 countries not making specific attempts to teach creativity in school.

But the article also talks about some recent research that shows creativity can be taught. It describes how it is done. If your kids’ schools are not doing this, do it at home. Your kids will be better off and you may save the country!!!

So if our education system is not producing engineers, scientists etc... since there is currently a shortage. And they are not teaching or producing any creativity/creative talent....ummmmm....What exactly are they doing?
