Windows Spotlight option missing from Windows 10 lock screen on Creators Update

The Windows Spotlight feature not only show you beautiful images from Bing on your Lock screen, but also pictures of Windows devices with certain apps. I have clean installed the Creators Update on my tablet running Windows 10 Education successfully. However, when I open the Settings app and go to the Lockscreen, the Spotlight option is missing in the drop-down menu, while the slider to show tips and content by Cortana is grayed out and set to OFF. A message “Some settings are hidden or managed by your organization” is displayed at the top. Everything worked fine before upgraded. How can I fix the issue?

Many people have reported that the Personalization menu states “Some settings are hidden or managed by your organization” in Windows 10. It seems to be a bug in the Creators update. And only rock picture appears on lock screen with the personal tablet or computer that is not part of any organisation.
