Why Our High Schools Need the Arts (No. 318)
JESSICA HOFFMANN DAVIS
Jessica Hoffmann Davis addresses the alarming dropout rate in our high schools and presents a thoughtful, evidence-based argument that increasing arts education in the high school curriculum will keep kids in school. Davis shares compelling voices of teachers and their adolescent learners to demonstrate how courses in the arts are relevant and valuable to students who have otherwise become disenfranchised from school. This important book points the way toward rescuing the American high school from the inside out by ensuring that all students benefit from the compelling and essential learning opportunities that the arts uniquely provide. This timely resource will inform the uninitiated, change the minds of doubters, and fuel the fight of those already committed to arts-related school reform. Co-published with Teachers College Press.
128 pgs. (2011) ISBN 978-0-8077-5286-9

“Clearly outlines AN ARTS EDUCATION STRATEGY OF ENORMOUS POWER AND APPEAL that I believe could be game changing.“
