Whoopi Goldberg, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Bill T. Jones, Rosie Perez, and Phylicia Rashad are among the contributors featured in the new book, The Muses Go to School: Conversations About the Necessity of Arts in Education, which goes on sale across the country on Tuesday, February 7.

The book, edited by Herbert Kohl and Tom Oppenheim, pairs first-person accounts from leading artists and celebrities with interpretive commentary by progressive educators to produce a powerful case for positioning the arts at the center of school curriculums. Some of the other contributors include Bill Ayers, Lisa Delpit, Maxine Greene, Deborah Meier, and Diane Ravitch.

Proceeds from the book go to the Stella Adler Studio of Acting's outreach division, a program dedicated to providing inner city youth with free actor training.
