    great handout from the National Art Education Association

    Many times, art teachers defend art education by saying that it raises test scores, keeps kids in school, or improves student performance in "core" academic areas. This may all be true, but the visual arts teach important "habits of mind" that can't be learned in traditionally "core" academic areas. The world my children will live and work in is a very different world than today and I want to prepare them for it. They will need these habits to be successful in the next generation of careers.
