No Child Left behind Strikes the Arts: How Can We Restore a Balance among the Studies in the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities?
Fuller, Judith A.
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2007 n3 Sum 2007
Most Americans actually understand the importance of an education rich in arts, science and humanities. But what they may not realize is that their children are not getting enough. Each day more and more of the arts and humanities are being drained from our nation's school curriculums. Studies have shown that the arts play a stimulating role in creativity and developing vital communities. They also have a crucial impact on our economy and are an important catalyst for learning, discovery, and achievement in our country. Our corporate and business leaders are stressing the need for recent graduates who are creative, innovative and have developed the capabilities for divergent thinking. They do not want to hire employees with a standardized mind. Top business executives believe that the arts education program can help repair weaknesses in American education and better prepare workers for the 21st century.
