Review by Arnold Aprill from

Community Arts Network ([...])

"Putting the Arts in the Picture: Reframing Education in the 21st Century" is an important new book -- a breakthrough document that cogently explores the role of the arts in innovative educational practice and school-improvement policy in the contemporary world. What makes it a break-through book?

For one thing, it is well written. It's actually readable. The sheer volume of books written recently about school improvement and educational policy could fill an almost endless vista of groaning bookshelves, but even setting aside the important question of how many of these tomes speak in meaningful ways to a broad base of concerned stakeholders, one first has to ask how many of these books are even readable to a small cadre of specialists. (The designated audience of most educational publishing, a world in which value to practitioners is often considered a negative.) The unfortunate answer is, precious few. And "Putting the Arts in the Picture" is one of them. Despite the variety of writers that address a broad range of topics in this one slim volume, the tone is consistently intelligent, lively and engaging. It is a joy to read as pure storytelling about kids and schools and teachers and artists and educational injustice and sustained hope. It is also a pleasure to read for its strengths in policy analysis, and for its willingness to grapple with intriguing and challenging intellectual puzzles concerning the role of aesthetic development in the cognitive growth of young people.

It is also, as is appropriate for a book about the arts, beautifully designed.

Format: Paperback
The title does not reflect the real content of the book. This is, in effect, a detailed description of a successful grant in a low-income school system. It does not provide genuinely useful information about how to keep the arts in 21st century schools.
