Creative illiteracy? How schools are making students illiterate
We often talk about illiteracy with respect to students. Teachers are evaluated constantly on their ability to make their students meet the mark. Meeting this mark is the measure of literacy. This paper identifies and discusses the relationship between teachers creativity and students literacy. It argues that creative illiteracy on the part of our teachers can lead to the big ILLITERACY that we fear for our students. It is based on observations and discussions with teachers and students in a number of schools over a period of 6 months.
