It's How You Play the Game – Application Bling

As school winds down for the summer, baseball season is ending soon for my son who is a sophomore in high school. For me, the season can’t end soon enough, yet four months ago we were all excitedly anticipating baseball season.This feeling has nothing to do wins and losses, or the actual game itself. It has to do with the same disgust that ends up spoiling what should be a positive experience and it’s happened in some form every year since our kids were six years old.We keep hanging on to hope that they are learning important life lessons that will help them through challenging times the rest of their lives.

National Youth Art Month and the Importance of Arts Education …

Every March, The ARTS Council installs hundreds of pieces of student artwork in businesses throughout Chemung, Schuyler and Steuben counties to celebrate National Youth Art Month (NYAM).  This year, thanks to a grant from the Doris Bovee Foundation, the celebration is bigger than ever before, with more students, teachers and businesses participating.  And it couldn’t be more timely.  Because as we celebrate the artist in every child and the importance of arts education, school districts throughout our region are planning to fire art and music teachers.Many elementary schools in our region will lose their art and music teachers at the end of this year due to mounting budget deficits, say local school boards.  They can eliminate these positions because New York State, while mandating art and music education at the elementary level, does not mandate that the subjects be taught by art or music teachers.  According to New York State, classroom teachers can teach these subjects. What does this mean? Art and music classes will disappear, and gone will be the art club, chorus, band, orchestra, and instrumental and voice lessons.  I am appalled by this shortsighted response to a budget problem when research clearly shows that participation in the arts contributes greatly to student success.Students who participate in the arts for at least three hours a day, three times a week for at least one year are:4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement. 4 times more likely to win an award for writing an essay or poem. 4 times more likely to participate in a math or science fair.
