    Hello, I retired two years ago from the DOE. I would like
    to let all new Admin who read this that the best way to
    raise test scores in your school is to implement a good
    Visual Arts program. Find the funding. When I was at my
    school I turned a blind eye to all the research people put
    in front of me stating that visual art helps with problem
    solving, cognitive thinking ect.. It does work. NYC and
    other schools need the arts now. Good luck at your new jobs
    and for the record, when I was an Superintendent I loved
    reading this site. There are a lot of thoughtful comments
    on here. Good Luck in September.
