Revue de presse
Fowler is a superb writer and a convincing one. He is one of the best in the field. The readership of this book will be the zillions of individuals who have worked so hard in recent years to insure that the arts are basic, that arts instruction be evaluated, and that the arts become more visible (Richard Colwell, New England Conservatory of Music) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .
Présentation de l'éditeur
Charles Fowler here argues that studying the arts is an important and valuable component of general education and of society and American culture. Directed toward a broad public audience with the intent of providing parents and other interested citizens with a thorough background about arts education, the author presents a number of different rationales to support the necessity of the arts in general education. Fowler confronts complicated matters of curriculum such as -- who should study the arts? which arts and whose culture should be taught? -- and discusses the varying philosophies amongst arts advocates and educators themselves.
