Indeed, there has been a prevailing claim that the current education system is not assisting the students in developing their skills ideally. Most students even suggest that their creativity should be modeled instead of wasting many years in classwork that they do not understand. We must know about this subject since it is proportional to the performance and morale of the students. It is also essential for instructors to realize that they are dealing with humans. Over the past years, we have heard of students who bare specific skills to the highest level, and they are commonly referred to as a genius. Some exhibit these characteristics from early childhood, while others realize it after encountering other challenges. The paper is set to address whether the education system distinguishes creativity (Shaheen, R. 2010).
In simple terms, the education system refers to the arrangement between a student and a tutor in a given context. Nevertheless, the scope widens from a broader perspective. For students, the education system does encompass elementary school life to the tertiary institutional level. On the other hand, creativity refers to the transcendent way of reasoning or acting such that a new model of solving a problem is attained. Creativity is fundamental in the academic field, and most teachers expect their learners to incorporate it In their classwork, but there is an impediment.
The importance of creativity appears to have highly undervalued in modern schooling, resulting in people’s incapacity to manage complex assignments: “decision-makers consistently reject new ideas even when extolling originality as an essential goal.” People fail to address developing difficulties because they are perplexed when confronted with any circumstance that differs from the norm, resulting in significant degeneration of the economic system and finances. Due to recent concerns with the settlement of non-standard economic and financial duties, individuals’ need to stimulate creativity has evolved (Shaheen, R. 2010). This may be handled by promoting creativity in schools; nevertheless, the offered answer necessitates that the present educational system is modified, that might bring about student’s presentation crumbling.
Learners are encouraged to study since the notion of creative learning appeals to their ambitions and desires. As a result, it is feasible to reimagine the study process, keeping it less grade-centered and more oriented on accessing information and training of newly acquired abilities. Teachers need to be instructed on integrating cognitive psychology into their teaching patterns (Srinivasan, M., & Sood, P. 2021). By so doing, they will grasp the attention and trust of their students and guide them safely into meaningful career paths.
The suffocating environment of today’s schools is a disease. It prevents our children from developing into the creative individuals that the world so sorely needs to overcome the barriers and problems that humanity has still to confront. Learning outside of the classroom, on the other hand, provides a great deal of independence, which is crucial for learning. There is no written manual to raise a child. The proper job of education leadership is not ‘command and control,’ but somewhat situational control (Lian, B. 2020). Additionally, Skilled students do not get a feeling of accomplishment since the things they are great at are not appreciated at school; as a result, their tremendous creative potential is squandered.
Pills and tablets are unnecessary here. Even though education is forced on pupils, sure students stand out from the crowd. These students meet specific criteria for having a learning handicap or are sometimes considered sluggish. When kids graduate from high school, they are forced to believe that “this is how it is supposed to be.” (Srinivasan, M., & Sood, P. 2021)Parents and the economic situation then persuade them that they must pursue their education to achieve success. Such moves promote the perception that there would be no sense of success without education, whereas, in the 1950s, a person with a master’s degree teaching education was considered rare.
Need for Further Research
Despite the controversial view of different scholars, it is still evident that further research is required. To increase the degree of research relevance, it would be better if the students could be sampled and questioned on how they view the matter. We understand that the education system in different countries differs. It will be worth it to investigate whether the system in the prevailing country is at fault or, generally, all the designs have a flaw. If students in another country perform better with the current education system, then it can be adopted. Otherwise, the plans should be scraped off, and students are taken to fields of creativity to unleash their potential.
As we have seen, there exists a link between the education system and creativity. One is now occupying the position of the other and is likely to do away with it soon if not checked. Most students worldwide are now forced to bury their heads in books. Those who find it hard to adhere to these restrictions decide to quite the system searching for something new.
