A Follow Up to "Creativity Killers: Checklists and Rubrics"

As a follow up my last post, Creativity Killers: Checklists and Rubrics, I want to share something Pasi Sahlberg said in a piece he wrote for the Washington Post:

"I think we should not educate children to be similar according to a standardized metric but help them to discover their own talents and teach them to be different from one another. Diversity is richness in humanity and a condition for innovation."

On Sahlberg's website, he says, "The worst enemy of creativity is standardization." I couldn't agree more. He and I clearly are on the same page. Hopefully you are, too.

The article, in its entirety, can be found here.
