"It stings mischievously and laughs uproariously" - The NY Times

by BWW News Desk - Jun 11, 2014

CLEARWATER, Fla., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ While the Common Core standards have been a lightning rod for controversy in education, some supporters of education reform have questioned the lack of visual and performing arts in many schools today. According to a report by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), a branch of the U.S. Department of Education, the percentages of schools making theater and dance available went from 20percent ten years ago to only 4and 3percent, respectively, in the 2009-2010 school year. In addition, at more than 40percent of secondary schools, coursework in the arts was not required for graduation (1). Officials at Clearwater Academy International (CAI), a Tampa Bay private school, say that failing to provide adequate arts education robs students of a well-rounded learning environment. As a school that recognizes the importance of helping students develop the skills necessary to achieve their ambitions, CAI held its fifth annual Festival of Arts event. Students displayed various pieces of artwork created throughout the school year, and performing arts students acted in the spring musical, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. The exhibit and play both opened on April3rd and ran until April5th. (more...)
