Listen to Mr. Arne Duncan, U. S. Department of Education Secretary, commenting on the role and state of arts education. This sound file includes pre and post interview commentary. Read the letter, listen to this interview and tell us what your thoughts are.
Arts teachers, we need to get more involved! If we don't want to see our resources and arts funding continue to disappear, we need to do our part to connect with the community and let our elected officials know how we feel about the state of the arts in our city and state. Only if we unite our efforts to actively advocate for the arts we will be successful. There are many state and national organizations out there working hard to bring more arts to our kids. Help out! Find out how you can make a difference. Join our conversation and you will already be making a difference while you connect with colleagues from around the city.
