Notable Quotable: John Lloyd Young on Arts Education

"If you give children an escape from their regimentation, if you give them an escape from maybe the ignorance they are raised in at home, and you give them an oasis to come to everyday where not only do they learn important things---math, science and all of that, computers---but they also learn to open up, to dream, to imagine, to innovate, to create, to think outside the box, and you train them in those skills, when they become adults… when they grow up, they will be the type of citizens who can inspire other people, who know how to fashion a message for important purposes and can possibly rescue all of us. " --- John Lloyd Young
