SeanChron | City Arts Article on the Need for Arts in STEM

Just read a great article by in the Seattle City Arts magazine, Creative Class by Jonathan Zwickel. In the article, Zwickel explores one of my favorite subjects, how obsessive focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education is not enough...we need to focus on the arts and humanities as well if we want to have well rounded students in this and the next century. Zwickel does a great job of sharing the story of how a national crisis (in my opinion) plays out in Seattle Public Schools. Adding an "A" for arts into STEM...forming "STEAM" may be one answer but as you might expect, its much more complicated than that.
