THE CREATIVE ARTS ON OUR SCHOOLS CURRICULUM
Are you, like me, just so fed-up with the continual cut backs of the creative subjects from our school curriculum.
All creative subjects, music, art, drama, textiles, deserve a serious place in our schools and not just be viewed as leisure activities. What
can we do about it?
There are so many people speaking out about this major controversy in education and thought I would give you some recent links from the crafts council, which makes for some interesting reading.......but still I ask what can we do?
~ Surgery students 'loosing dexterity to stitch patients'
~ Art and creativity 'squeezed out of schools'
~ The power of the arts and social activities to improve the nation's health.
~ Big names call for arts education to be preserved.
