I’m not going to say, ‘What’s the boss of a TV show?'” Kohn said, laughing.
“That’s probably the one I’m thinking about right now,” he added, noting that he might be even more excited by the idea of a TV show, because he’s not so sure about a movie or game.
Kohn also said that he was surprised that Marvel “didn’t want to give them permission” to hire writers who used the characters that appear in their movies or games. “You’d think Disney, which owns Marvel but they’re not in business with Marvel Studios, maybe would like that.”
I have had the privilege to work with many talented artists over my nearly four decades of teaching arts education. The one common denominator is that everyone possesses the talent and skill to bring their individual vision to life. And that is exactly why I believe that art education is so critical for our future.

The National Research Council released a report this year, “A Nation at Risk,” in which they report that the United States’ average student performance in reading and math is significantly worse than the national average of countries like Russia, Finland and Sweden. The report also reported that only a handful of public schools in the country are ranked in the top five per the OECD.
