Amundson, Kristen J.
This booklet, written for parents and other citizens concerned about education, discusses some of the reasons why the arts are--and should be--a part of every student's basic education. Seven reasons are listed and discussed: arts as communication; arts and creativity; arts and understanding human civilization; arts and learning other subjects; arts and discipline; arts and preparation for adult life; and arts and artistic judgment. Elements of an outstanding arts program are described. A list of questions is included for evaluating school arts programs. Suggestions are presented for getting involved in school arts programs.
