education in East Africa

 

 

WHY EDUCATION FOR CREATIVITY IS LIMITED?

 

 

 

According to the Summative Evaluation of the Primary and Secondary Education Curriculum Report of Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development of 2010, art in schools is limited because:

 

  • The subject of 'art' is not examined or assessed

 

  • "The value of the arts is not recognised"

 

There is also:

 

  • Confusion over the nature of creativity, which is understood simply as artistic skills or a past-time activity

 

  • Athough politicians, civil servants and business leaders have high regard for innovation and entrepreneurship, they do not yet associate or connect it with education for creativity in schools.
