quote.

"One of the most difficult challenges of the last 10 years has been to argue the case for more art education in a political climate where only things that are quantifiable are considered worth knowing. This runs contrary to what today’s social thinkers are telling us is needed for the future: an educated population that can think imaginatively, critically, and metaphorically; that can problem-find and problem-solve; that recognizes subtle nuance and ambiguity while seeing the big picture—all things that art contributes to today’s broader curriculum goals."
