I think Sir Ken Robinson would say, and I agree, that we should be encouraging creative writing. I for one am not thrilled about this change, for I've been trained to write a certain way that I have yet to master, and if we do change, I would be asked to start training myself to do another form of writing I am not necessarily a pro at either; but I think that it would be a good way to see how it is that others experience life through writing.

Here is a video of Sir Ken Robinson talking about creativity being just as important as literacy:
