Description: A scanned newspaper clipping featuring an article written about the University of North Texas and their education reform program developed by staff William McCarter and Jack Davis. The education reform program is an experiment on the children in their classrooms by teaching them different methods of arts education. McCarter states that research has shown that arts expand all areas of the curriculum by tapping into higher-level thinking skills and that art makes a measurable difference in test scores. The funding, worth up to $15 million will be divided into thirty-six schools, six in Texas, to receive up to $35,000 in funding services for five years.
