VIRUS DIARY: Walking, alone, on streets built for crowds            
By SHELLEY ACOCA   Fri, March 27, 2020

NEW YORK (AP) — How long has it been — two weeks, three weeks — since life began to change, day by day, as the coronavirus pandemic arrived in New York? Social distancing, most stores closed, working from  home (or not working at all), friends sick or quarantined, friends waiting for tests, every single conversation about THE VIRUS.

Through a partnership with Bulova, PS 55 is getting the first-ever recording studio in a New York school, but its principal has a bigger mission planned. Art programs in public schools have long had the unfortunate luck of forever being in the crosshairs of budget cuts. Despite mountains of research extolling the benefits of incorporating music and art into curricula, the U.S. Department of Education’s 2020 budget proposal put “arts in education” on its list of programs to be eliminated, deeming that it has “limited impact.” Read the article published by FastCompany June 29, 2019  here...
