There can never be enough creativity in the schooling of our children. Education is a key ingredient in improving society and world peace: in our own homes, cities, and around the globe.

It is imperative that creative approaches to education are supported as domestic and international programs undergo improvement. Limiting creativity in education through the arts, culture, and foreign language initiatives hinders the development of each student as a contributing member of global society.

It is essential that we prepare our children for a global and interconnected world and that the ability to communicate across diverse worlds enables them to promote peace worldwide.
