“Many creative thinkers don’t thrive in school”

“Many creative thinkers don’t thrive in school, and it’s not because they have a learning problem. In fact, it’s often because their very strengths—the ability to make complex connections and think differently; a desire for deep meaning; their sensitivity, intuition, and internal motivation—aren’t activated in a one-size-fits-all, standardized approach to education. Often, these strengths are misinterpreted as deficits because of a poor fit with “the system,” which causes further struggle and disillusionment.” – Kathryn Haydon http://ow.ly/YlREC
