I am happy to share (in today's blog post) a comprehensive statement on arts education, Arts Education for America's Students, a Shared Endeavor.  It is  a statement that defines what quality arts education looks like at the local level, encourages partnerships, and calls on organizations and individuals to actively support and promote arts education. Please be sure and read today's blog post at http://meartsed.wordpress.com/2014/01/14/arts-education-for-americas-students/ and share with your colleagues and community members. The statement was created in collaboration by 12 major organizations.
