Do schools kill creativity?

Sir Ken Robinson on TED makes the case for dance
:"every education system in the world has the hierarchy of subjects,at the top mathematics and languages, and at the bottom are the arts. In Arts there is hierarchytoo, art and music are given a higher status in schools then drama and dance. There isn't an education system on the planet that teaches dance everyday to children, the way we teach them mathemathics, why, why not? I think this is rather important, I think math is very important, children dance all the time, we all have bodies, did I miss anything?"
