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.
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!
