5. As students, principals, teachers, and school partners work to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on academic achievement, what role do you see the arts playing? What strategies do you envision for broadening the school-day curriculum so instructional time in the arts is not crowded out of the school day?
Arts will be part of the curriculum just like Math. Arts is as important a course as science, history, writing and in fact uses all the other parts of the educational curriculum.
I do think the arts should be flexible as some kids may want to do more performative type arts and some children prefer solo arts practices like digital art.
Flexible arts curriculum that is part of the regular structure. I would hope teachers find a way to show how all required coursework actually relates to each subject. A holistic approach to education.
