Comics Education in the New York Times

And now the New York Times runs editorials about comics education; in this case, about the impressive New York-based Comic Book Project.  I really like the Comic Book Project’s emphasis on community building through creative art and storytelling. 

It’s heartening to see the national press giving all this attention to comics education, and to see programs popping up at museums like the Norman Rockwell Museum.  Maybe we’re finally starting to realize the nourishing power and encouraging accessibility of the medium.

Hmmm.  Imagine a comics section on the SATs…
