Is education killing creativity?

Sir Ken Robinson, a world renowned education innovator, questions the old education systems around world. He believes education today is the exact same during the industrial revolution. Back then creativity was not even considered a subject in school; The two main subjects were Mathematics and Science.
After viewing his interview on this subject, I do not totally agree to what he says. Not everyone is "creative" in the arts(music, drama, art) but are creative in math and science. To accompany everyone, schools should give more choices to their students. Give students around the chance to develop their natural abilities but do not force it on them.
