A compelling case, even given #privacy concerns.
As schools continue to foolishly reduce students’ exposure to the performing and fine arts, kids are increasingly being cultivated into passive consumers, rather than active creators. They are not only losing the opportunity for free creative exploration in a variety of media, they are also missing the boat when it comes [...]
