Lack of creativity

Creativity means the ability to make something new or think of new ideas. The future of our children and success of the country depends on creative education, but creative students are very few due to some major reasons; first, the teachers do not allow the students to ask questions; they are very strict and students are there only to listen. Secondly, the students’ aim is to get good marks in examination and for this purpose some of the students study just before the start of examination and prepare teachers’ notes.
