The Misunderstood Role of the Arts in Human Development.
Eisner, Elliot W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v73 n8 p591-95 Apr 1992
America 2000 presents an educational reform agenda that neglects the arts. Prevailing misconceptions of the arts are based on a massive misunderstanding of their role in human development and education. The arts contribute significantly by celebrating the value of multiple perspectives and nuances in problem solving, relating form to content, and fostering both self-expression and discovery.
