Why Our High Schools Need the Arts is the recent sequel to the advocacy manifesto Why Our Schools Need the Arts. Both books are now available in Korean. In her latest work, Jessica Hoffmann Davis addresses the alarming drop-out rate in our high schools. Employing thoughtful, evidence-based arguments, intermixed with the voices of high school students,  she maintains that an increase in arts education throughout the secondary level curriculum would give our children the impetus and rationale to stay in school.
