Here is a good way to kill students natural desire to learn and subvert creative experience across the curriculum.
Here is an excellent essay from Brian P. Jones on the defunding of public schools across the country, elimination of creative learning experience, and the hypocrisy of education reformers when it comes to the schools they send their own children to.

|Youth Art Month exhibitors have their photographs taken with State Supt. Glenda Ritz.|
|The North Atrium was packed wall to wall.|
I felt especially gratified when Supt. Ritz noted during her keynote: "Indiana K-12 music and art programs are valued and will be supported."
It is with the deepest gratitude that I thank AEAI President Sidney Allen,, AEAI President Elect Bev Staub, YAM Co-Chairs Allie Staub and Mindy Hiatt for their tremendous efforts and all of the AEAI volunteers who came out to make this event one of the best YAM events ever.
