Summary
"In The Muses Go to School, autobiographical pieces by well-known artists and performers are paired with illuminating essays by distinguished educators to produce a powerful case for putting the arts at the center of primary and secondary school curricula. Spanning a range of genres from acting and music to literary and visual arts, these smart and entertaining voices make surprising connections between the arts and the development of intellect, imagination, spirit, emotional intelligence, self-esteem, and self-discipline in young people."--Jacket
