From Joel Shatzky and Tikkun Magazine comes Arts Education as a Spiritual Act.
As this trend continues to evolve and grow, the spiritual qualities of
America which was once, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, the “last best
hope of mankind” will have been extinguished, while along with the
intellectual and cultural environment, the physical environment will
continue to decline. In order to see the consequences of this
“educational reform” movement let’s examine what a large proportion of
our young learners are not being adequately taught as “test prep”
increasingly crowds out the opportunity for giving them a comprehensive
and sound education.
