Dear Friends:
Education leaders have much to celebrate as the impact of art integration on
student achievement and engagement is becoming more widely known and
embraced. Principals have seen the results: increased test scores and attendance
as students lean forward, eager to express their ideas with art. Professional
learning communities feel their collaborative energy increase as art integration
builds creative capacity schoolwide.
While there are still many questions about the implementation of the new
Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), there's good news in it for arts education.
The term "core academic subjects" has given way to "a well-rounded education,"
and the arts still have a place at the table-music and art are listed among
the components of a well-rounded education, defined as having "the purpose
of providing all students access to an enriched curriculum and educational
experience." The word "access" is key; it's a reminder that a major goal of ESSA
and all its titles is the provision of an equitable education for all students.
Access to art is truly essential to a well-rounded education. The new law
continues to set aside funding for the Arts Education Model Development and
Dissemination program grants (AEMDD), which showcase innovations in arts
education. And Title I, Title II, and Title IV funds are authorized to be used for
professional development for the arts and art integration. Title IV, for the first
time, explicitly identifies art integration as a specific strategy to effectively teach
cross-curricular disciplines.
In states and local communities throughout the nation, voices of education
thought leaders will shape the new education policies. We look forward to
partnering with you to build awareness of art's role in schools' pedagogy and
mission-making your voices heard to ensure visible and vibrant arts-enhanced
learning for all students.
