Glad Someone Decided To Mention It...
Quoted at The Playgoer:
"We have to improve arts and music funding generally, in schools but also outside of schools. The [National] Endowment for the Arts, our support of the public arts our support for arts institutions—all those things should be a priority and they don’t cost that much money. They really don’t. But you get such a big payoff…- Barack Obama
Part of what arts education does is it teaches people to see each other through each other’s eyes. It teaches us to respect and understand people who are not like us. That makes us better citizens and it makes our democracy work better."
