Arts Education is Essential
This unified statement of support for arts education has been reviewed and endorsed by 53 national arts and education organizations.
“Teaching and learning will never quite be the same in our post-COVID-19 world. However, our commitment to provide rich and varied educational experiences remains unwavering. The arts have played an important role in these tumultuous times and will continue to do so for all students, including the traditionally underrepresented, those with special needs, and from low-income families.”
