Making the Arts Accessible

I just finished reading this article over at Education Week. I am a firm believer in the arts and that an education is incomplete if it neglects the artistic aspects of the human experience. If our goal as educators is to prepare our students for the world, as I believe we ought, then we need to expose them as early on as possible to the arts, or we are neglecting a critical component of life.

Heather Omara puts forward some good advice on integrating arts on a budget, and targeting at-risk populations who may have little or no exposure to the arts and are thus at a deficit. I highly recommend reading, especially if you are an administrator struggling to find a way to make it all work.
