All - this is an amazing amazing presentation that I came across on a site call Ted.com.

What do you think about creativity and how it's nurtured in the UK education system?

I don't think it's schools that kill creativity per se; it's compulsory education that does that.

My school had a training day where all of the staff went to listen to Sir Ken Robinson - he was highly entertaining and very inspiring!

I've been teaching since before the National curriculum came in.
Schools didn't kill creativity, most of us have tried to keep it alive under the onslaught of literacy hours, numeracy hours, SATS and QCA tests and constant endless overwhelming demands for changes brought in by politicians, managers and theorists who have little or no first-hand experience of how real children learn. Particularly in the primary sector.
depends which way the wind is blowing and what is the current fleet of bandwagons.
