Voices from the Classroom: Bring back the band

Editor's note: In a new series called Voices from the Classroom: The Arts in Education Reform, NolaVie and cultural partner WWNO public radio are teaming up to take a look at how the arts are being used creatively in schools around the city. Why are they an important component for school curricula? And how are we integrating arts into local classrooms? Today, NolaVie president Sharon Litwin interviews Jonathan Bloom, arts specialist representing the Orleans Parish School Board.

Voices from the Classroom: The Arts in Education Reform is a year-long series about the arts and education in New Orleans by NolaVie and its cultural partner, WWNO public radio. The series is made possible by the generous support of the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation.
