I am a teacher and have been dismayed at the cuts in school programs, with arts being the first to go. I worried about a generation growing up without "culture". In some of the more affluent schools, parent's organizations have been able to raise money to support "Artist In Residence" programs- I have seen the effects in my grandchild's school. The effect goes beyond the value of dollars and will affect our city into the future. This program certainly shows the value of such programs in ALL our schools and these students, their mentors and their families are to be commended. They are articulate, creative- I hope we can push for more programs like this, then we can worry less about minds be-numbed by computer games.
