Arizona Attorney Magazine, December 2015

How is Arizona doing in the realm of education? And what role can—and should—arts play in the complete development of the human mind?

Those were a few of the questions that drove us toward our December cover story for Arizona Attorney Magazine. Yes, Arizona is consistently ranked poorly in national assessments of education. Given our longtime commitment to arts at the magazine, we wondered what our lawyer-artists would think of the topic.

That’s what took our writer, Oriana Parker, into fascinating conversations with numerous Arizona lawyers. The result, I think, is an insightful and highly readable piece that speaks to modern public policy issues.

You can read the whole story here. And thank you to those lawyers who gave of their time and talents to share their thoughts.

What did you think of the topic—and our coverage? And how should we be covering important policy dialogues in the future? Write to me at
