Creativity and Common Core State StandardsYou mentioned that creativity is lacking in schools these
days. With the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), there is an expectation
that this will reduce creativity. This is really difficult to say because the
entire roll out of the CCSS will take several years.
Hopefully, there will be revisions to address any
inadequacies. While it is important to address the skills employers want, our
country's creativity is the desire of other nations.
Consider whether there is a happy medium and how that can be
integrated into the CCS.
