Psst, Joel, yeah you. I hear that Arts in Schools are doing just great. You big fat liar. I see your pants and they are on fire. The report that apparently (yes I did read it) arts education in ALL ART DISCIPLINES have increased. Yeah really, have they Joel, have they. Lets see. I have said it a few times in this blog but my sons school does not have art at all, and I know his is not the only one, because unlike you I talk to parents, and I listen to them. You got rid of Project Arts. Remember that program the one that provided schools with a budget to bring Arts into the schools. Without Project Arts schools don't have the budgetary funds to enrich the children with a well rounded art program. Which increases a child's learning.
Let me ask you this Joel, like you care, but just how to you pick and choose which school is deserving of an arts education? As far as I see it ALL schools should receive an arts education. After all this is New York City. You know the city that has Broadway, Off Broadway, Galleries and hmmm some of the greatest Museums in the country. If you can hit your friends up for stupid yes stupid ways to invest their monies to help education. Well it doesn't really help education but you see it as helping. Cough Leadership Academy cough.
Since you have been in control schools have gone from worse to just the same. There have been no major improvements that I can see.All the lying and fake reports you put out are only fooling the uninformed. The people that don't have a child in the system.
Stop lying already Joel no one is buying it.
