Robinson asserts that creativity is as important as literacy in education and should be accorded the same level of significance. He observes that children are unafraid to take risks and make mistakes, rather they embrace the possibility of being wrong in fostering creativity. However, as children grow into adults, they tend to lose this capacity due to a fear of making mistakes, which is perpetuated by a society that stigmatizes errors. To combat this, Robinson calls for broader recognition of diverse talents and equal recognition of creativity alongside traditional subjects.
