ARE THE STUDENTS REALLY PREPARED?

DO YOU REMEMBER ART, MUSIC, THEATRE, DANCE, HOME ECONOMICS, AND PE CLASSES? SO WHERE DID THEY GO?

There was a time when students, not just elementary school students, but high school students had the option to take electives in Art, Music, Theatre, Dance , Auto shop, Woodworking, Home Economics and Cooking. Even classes on Life Skills; the list goes on. 


What happened to all of these classes that helped to make our children and grandchildren well rounded individuals? 


Studies show that in a society full of so much technology and social media that our children are more stressed out than ever before.

 The ability to communicate directly with one another has decreased. We much rather communicate thru technology. 


The outlets for creativity and to express themselves need to come back into the school system. Help me bring Music, Art, Dance & P.E. back into our schools.

WELL ROUNDED EDUCATION

 Secretary of Education John King agrees. Speaking to the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts , King declared that while literacy and math skills were “necessary for success in college and in life…they’re not by themselves sufficient. A more well-rounded education is critical for a safe, supportive and enjoyable learning environment.” http://neatoday.org/2016/06/21/essa-well-rounded-education/

NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT (NCLB) and EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT ESSA'S

 

When these two programs did not yield the results everyone was hoping for we started heading right back to where we first began a WELL ROUNDED EDUCATION.
