Creativity occupies a somewhat paradoxical role within formal K12 and higher educational settings. Although educators have long viewed educational settings as a promising context for the development and expression of student and teacher creativity, schools and classrooms have also been characterized as sites of creative suppression. The purpose of this entry is to provide an overview of various ways creativity has been conceptualized in educational environments, discuss implications for creative expression, and briefly highlight directions for research and practice.
