What Does Creativity Mean in English Education?
Education 3-13, v35 n2 p109-116 May 2007
Creativity is seen as important to society by the current Prime Minister and the Department for Education and Skills and is present in curriculum documents applying from birth to 16 years old but with various shades of meaning. Unfortunately, the term creativity is used in English education and the larger society without a clear definition. The author argues that for creativity to truly underpin education there needs to be an agreed definition of creativity.
