In what ways do schools curb imagination?**

I think the way that schools curb imagination is by teaching all children to the same curriculum, regardless of each individual child’s needs and talents. I also think schools curb imagination through certain rules they impose and having to constantly be politically correct and having to constantly consider the legalities of every child’s actions, as well as their own, every day.
