A Worthwhile Article For Anyone Interested In Arts Education

SloukaHello, good morning, and welcome to the Saturday Morning News Post!

Readers, a few weeks ago I wielded my SMNP and struck a blow towards string/band program cuts in Vancouver. Well today I read this article (yes, the article did come out over a month ago,… I’m running a little behind OK!?) which reports that music program cuts may be abandoned.

That’s right. Thanks to ME,… and maybe this guy, … and perhaps these people it looks like the kids might be able to keep their band programs after all! YAAAYY!

So today I’d like to direct your attention to this fantastic article I was shown recently (thanks sj!). Written by Mark Slouka for Harper’s Magazine, it is entitled “Dehumanized: When Math and Science Rule the School”.

The importance of the arts in our society is something I always find difficult to put into words but Slouka does so in a very intelligent and entertaining way. So enjoy the article and let me know if you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Thanks for reading and have a terrific week everyone! jd
