Struggling Schools Benefit from Adding Arts to Learning…!?

This is what is missing in our schools. In most cases, the day they enter first grade (sometimes earlier), public school kids’ creative and experiential education ends, and worksheets and standardized testing begins. (Fortunately, this is anomalously NOT the case at EK Powe and DSA (both public), where my kids go to school.) Education is holistic- you can’t separate the arts from the sciences any more than you can separate the left brain from the right brain. I want to play an active role in returning Creativity and Fun to practical elementary education.
