ARTICLE: How America’s Education Model Kills Creativity and Entrepreneurship

The Miller Center's Cristina Lopez-Gattardi Chao and the Darden School of Business' Raul Chao discussed the impact our current K-12 system is having on creativity and entrepreneurship levels in a recent Forbes piece

They argue that in today's job market, creativity is a critical skill, one which we are not doing enough to foster. And much of this boils down to curricula that stigmatizes risk taking and failure. 

In the piece, they cite the Miller Center's recent Milstein Symposium reportCan Startups Save the American Dream? and lauds some of the ideas advanced as a step in the right direction on this important matter.
