On Art and Education There seems to be an endless debate about the state of education in our society, which is by no means a bad thing.

But the level of controversy makes me believe that it has become more important to win the debate than to determine the right direction for both our youth and humanity in general.

Of some kind. And so began the long process of deciding not only what we wanted to do but how we were going to achieve it. I found it on the internet, we arranged for them to visi...
