“…I don’t mean to say that being wrong is the same thing as being creative, but what we do know is: if you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original. By the time they get to be adults, most kids have lost that capacity; they have become frightened of being wrong. […] We’re now running national education systems where mistakes are the worst thing you can make, and the result is that we are educating people out of their creative capacities. Picasso once said: ‘All children are born artists. The problem is how to remain an artist as we grow up.’ I believe passionately that we don’t grow into creativity; we grow out of it – or, rather, that we get educated out of it.”

—Sir Ken Robinson on creativity in education, as heard at TED
