Do schools kill creativity?

I was shown this presentation originally as a demonstration how effectively some people can present without the assistance of slides, props and whiteboards. Indeed ,Sir Ken Robinson shows that this can be done to great effect. I also however found the content extremely entertaining and profound. In it he makes a moving case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity. Since initially seeing this presentation (first published in 2006) I have shown it to numerous friends and colleagues and everyone who has seen it has thought it to be one of the best. It is little wonder that it is one of the most viewed presentations on the website.
