Well, the word on the street (well, Washington actually) is that art and design will help kids improve in STEM learning. Who knew? Actually, it doesn’t surprise me at all… what is science if not creativity and curiosity? Maybe some day they will decide to put music and languages back into school programs too. You know, when kids are young enough to actually learn it. Not in high school once the brain has already pruned the neurons for language acquisition. Gotta love America.
