A Word from Jim Dowdy!

If you followed the news from last month’s Advocacy blog, in early December both the US House and Senate passed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (Every Child Succeeds Act) and President Obama signed it into law.

This month’s article comes from Education Week, where Jackie Zubrzycki reports on the bill’s impact on music and the arts.

Arts education advocates breathed a sigh of relief last Thursday when the Every Student Succeeds Act, which includes language that cements states’ obligation to support arts education programs in public schools, became the new federal education law of the land.
