On November 13th, 2010 the Council of School Supervisors & Administrators will convene for their annual educational leadership conference, this year centering on the theme “Embracing Imagination, Fostering Creativity.” Lincoln Center Institute is co-sponsoring and will present several sessions at the event, including an Imagination Conversation moderated by Sade Baderinwa, WABC news anchor.
Today CSA President Ernest Logan published a commentary discussing education and accountability and the central role of imagination in student success. Not surprisingly, a recent meeting Logan held with Scott Noppe-Brandon, LCI’s Executive Director and co-author of Imagination First, seemed to fuel his thinking about these issues. “For centuries, the arts have been a civilizing force in society. Imagination, whether in the arts or any other sphere, has elevated us above all other creatures.”
