A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #13

“The new imperative is creativity. We don’t need our schools to inculcate the habits of menial labor. the new economy needs a workforce that is trained in creativity. And that fundamentally implies a new and unprecedented attention to the arts.”

– from the chapter “Education” in Cultural Democracy by James Bau Graves
