We are fighting for design education in K-12 schools. These comments have been very helpful.

Perhaps if students learn more about the importance of design in schools they will be more receptive as adults.

Subject: [IxDA Discuss] Why Design Matters

Sorry for a second post in one day.

I find that I often have to fight for design -- not for me as the
designer, but just for spending time and money on design. Some
clients don't know what it is, but believe it has something to do
with making things prettier after they are almost built.

So ... in preparation for writing a blog piece on this subject, I
queried some friends. One wrote a paragraph that's almost a poem,
and says just about all I wanted to put in my mini-essay.

It's on my
blog: http://arthurfink.wordpress.com/2009/10/04/why-design-matters/
