Creativity in schools needs to be taken "far more seriously" if it is to avoid being squeezed out of a crowded curriculum, says a report from MPs.
The Commons education committee warns that creativity is a "second-order priority" in England's schools.
The MPs say creativity should be a fundamental part of learning and should receive adequate funding.
"Successful schools are creative schools," said the committee chairman, Labour MP Barry Sheerman.
