    You mean post secondary?

    The poll question didn't say do schools stunt creativity, but I'm pretty familiar with the individual listed with the topic.

    What he talks about is the fact that schools don't nurture the natural talents and creativity behind the individual students but that they take the regimented approach to education.

    You're speaking in absolutes... as does the OP. Depends on the school, the program, and the teacher.

    Does the fact that the individual can not chose the school, the program and the teacher not reflect the problem at hand?

    Since this is inaccurate, no.

    No, tertiary, same thing, but you Yanks had to change the name.

    Schools aren't meant to do that, they teach people what they need to be able to express their creativity themselves. Trying to personalise a curriculum for students who are at an age where they don't even know what they want to do, or which talents they want to pursue, would be kinda difficult, so the regimented approach is the only practical option.

    I *think* we adopted the name from Germany.
    Could be wrong though.

    I dunno, kids seem to develop interests at early ages.
    They could lead to future career paths.

    Regimentation is for the military.

    You can choose to go to private or public school. In many cities, you have choices, based on application, to go to a variety of public schools. Many high schools have different programs, allowing a variety of focuses. Different directions of English are offered (literature, creative writing, journalism), different artistic directions, and different musical directions. Teachers themselves offer more creative ways to teach and to allow students to learn by exploring and investigating, rather than direct informational regurgitation. There are lots of choices these days, both in where to go and within the school itself.

    I deal with lots of school systems in the states, spud. It's not as regimented as you would think. Yes, certain basics are mandatory, but there is a lot of creative exploration both inside those basics and outside. Often school provides a structure where creativity can occur.
