What’s at stake if kids don’t study the arts in school?

I wanted to explore some broader ideas of why the arts matter.

So meet high school principal Eric Alburtus, who says arts classes give kids a chance to discover new worlds and different ways of thinking and creating.

In fact, Alburtus’ teenage son worked backstage doing lighting and design for the high school’s musicals, and that’s what got him interested in engineering — which he’s going to study in college this fall.
