ARTS: "Absolutely Critical" for Business

Jonathan Spector on Importance of Arts/Creativity in Business

"Productivity and innovation are absolutely critical..."
"Arts education is perceived to be absolutely critical in stimulating the kind of skills and capabilities that lead to innovation and creativity..."
Companies are saying they most desperately need people who are: leaders, creative thinkers, communicators, influential, have varied perspectives, are visually observant.

If the ARTS play a "critical role," what are "we" (society, educators, parents, administrators) doing about it????
