Ms. Paulu believes that the quality of our culture, both present and future, is strongly linked to the quality of “The Arts” in our nation – how they are taught, valued, and preserved. Education needs to be about developing the WHOLE child, valuing the areas of every discipline, and understanding how they cohesively build intelligence, discipline, compassion, and humanity.
