Mike Huckabee On Art And Music Education

This video, via the good folks at SoundTree, passed through the Music PLN today. Whatever your political leanings may be, and whatever you may thing of Mike Huckabee, his message in this video, as far as I'm concerned, touches on the root of not only the benefits of an education in the performing and fine arts, but the essential need for our young people to be nurtured into more creativity.


I really like the analogy he makes between students and computers. In his analogy, traditional education methods input raw data (memorized facts) into the student computer and expect the computer to reproduce that data. Without the arts to foster original thinking and creative processing, the students' computer has no operating system. Brilliant.
