I think your DH is right on. I can’t stand how NCLB has changed our schools. My mom, who’s taught 2nd grade for 30 years, has to teach her children a new reading method this year and it’s taking up all their time –hers and the kids. The basics are important, yes, but if you take away music and art, you might as well take away the sun.
I browsed a bit for a picture but couldn’t come up with anything. If you really want to look into it, contact the music department at BYU-Idaho, particularly Dr. Kevin Brower or Dr. Randall Kempton.]]>
I love it!
It took Rusty until he was 15 or 16 on a family vacation before he drew meaningful pictographs (remember the “sears” tower, Rusty?)]]>
“schools push the a-b-c linear, mechanistic thinking. and generally discourage (at least, by cutting art/music programs) creative problem solving, holistic thinking.
hence — math, science, english, etc; but little or no art, photography, orchestra, dance, etc]]>
