""This refreshing collection presents perspectives on the best way for children to grow in the arts, in light of conflicting philosophies of creativity and debates about the purpose of teaching the arts. For example, if the goal of arts education is to serve as a platform for self-expression, does critical feedback imply judgment of the individual or the values brought to the work? Though they admit they cannot provide a unifying theory or specific policies, the authors have admirably laid the groundwork for eliminating a tragically common occurrence, 'the teacher who knows what he or she likes but can't or won't say why.' -R.F. Subotnik, CUNY Hunter College, CHOICE Dec 00'."
