Join a Conference Call about Arts Education with Sec. of Education Arne Duncan
Yesterday, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan released a letter to school officials and community leaders reminding them of the important role of arts education in a student's life. This letter offers strong encouragement to education decision makers to find time and funds in the school day to offer a comprehensive, sequential and standards-based arts education. The letter can be read here.
The Secretary has also agreed to join a national conference call hosted by the NAMM Foundation and the Support Music Coalition on Tuesday, August 18th at 1 p.m. EST to discuss the importance of arts education in K-12 education. Mary Luehrsen, Director of Public Affairs and Government Relations will moderate a live conversation with Secretary Duncan concerning his letter about the importance of arts education in our nation’s schools.
