Study Shows Kids are Born Creative Geniuses But the Education System Destroys Imagination

98 percent of 5-year-olds tested at the “genius” level.

Upon entry into the school system, those numbers started to drop dramatically. When the team returned to test those same subjects at age 10, the percentage of genius-level imaginative and innovative thinkers fell to an unthinkable 30 percent.    . . .    The downward spiral continued to be demonstrated at age 15.  When the researchers returned, the percentage of genius-level students had dropped to an abysmal 12 percent.
