Jessica Hoffmann Davis has written extensively on the importance of arts programs in our schools. In her new book, "Why Our High Schools Need the Arts," she continues her arts "manifesto" while venturing into new territory that is specific to the goals of our nation's secondary schools. Tangible evidence is considered regarding the potential impact of quality arts programs on the ever-increasing high school drop-out rate. The role of drama as a catalyst for adolescent success is examined. How the arts can address teenage social/emotional issues and encourage empathy, respect and self-esteem is discussed. This book is highly recommended for high school arts teachers, high school teachers who incorporate the arts and creativity into other subjects, school administrators, and politicians who are interested in the improvement of secondary school education.
