The Arts & Physical Ed. are Crucial

I hope that school districts realize the power that the arts and physical education have on healing the mind, body and souls of our students. We have observed how these are the very things that have helped everyone (children and adults) endure the stay-at-home orders during the pandemic. This is definitely the time for promoting and supporting these programs within schools rather than cutting them. They are going to be critical to the social, emotional needs of our students when they return to school whether through distance learning or back in the traditional classroom.

Hi Jolie:

Thanks for joining our conversation. What do you think is the single most convincing argument in favor of more funding for arts and phys ed? What will convince cash-strapped states and frugal legislators to increase rather than slash?
