March 22, 2014: Great Expectations for Learning: The Role of the Arts in Preparing America’s Students for College, Careers, and Citizenship
Across the country, states are raising the bar on what all students are expected to know and be able to do in order to be prepared for college, careers, and citizenship. What are the implications of this movement for the arts? And how can arts and education leaders effectively respond to and inform this transition so that all students receive a complete and competitive education that includes equitable access to high quality arts learning opportunities?
Join the Arts Education Partnership of the Council of Chief State School Officers for a one-day Arts in Education State Policy Symposium (reception to follow) to examine the role and contribution of the arts as states transition to greater learning expectations for America’s students. Americans for the Arts and The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, two AEP partner organizations and national leaders among arts and arts education organizations, are principal collaborators with AEP in support of this Symposium.
