Cognitive developmental psychologist Davis, founder of the Arts in Education Program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, leads the way to a new kind of art-in-the-schools advocacy--one that stops justifying the arts as useful to learning other subjects, and argues instead for the powerful lessons that the arts teach children. She offers a set of principles and tools for advocates working to secure a place for the arts in education, including a list of common objections to including the arts in schools, with suggested responses for countering these arguments. A glossary of terms and lists of organizations, recommended readings, and web sites are included. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
