"We need to expand our view of education to support the diverse range of our intelligences; to offer rich, interconnected learning experiences; and above all, to nurture creativity. I believe the arts are the key to that transformation and that they need to be placed squarely in the center of a student’s educational experience from preschool through college".
-- Edward Bilous
"We need to move beyond education systems that are organized into sequences of steps that lead to a singular destination. We don’t experience the world in a linear fashion and we shouldn’t organize our learning that way".
On April 18, 2012, Edward Bilous, the William Schuman Scholar's Chair, delivered this lecture about the future of arts education and its importance in the school system. Utterly inspiring.
