3. Do you believe arts are essential to NYC public school education? Why or why not?

Absolutely essential !

I believe in the arts – especially for kids that may not be traditionally “academic” , who can find a way to flourish and find confidence through dance, spoken word, writing and visual art.

I really want to use it for disadvantaged kids so it’s not treated as a “luxury” but as an essential part of the educational system.
