Join us April 4-5 in Washington, DC for the 2013 National Forum Arts, Education, and the Next America
The status quo in American public education will no longer do. Seismic shifts in student demographics are creating more culturally and linguistically diverse populations, emerging academic standards and technologies are setting the bar for higher achievement, and the changing priorities of our country’s leadership are making way for the next America. The America of the future should be one in which all students have equal access and opportunity to a high quality public education that includes the arts as an essential component.
These factors compel today’s arts and education leaders to re-envision how they address students’ diverse and individual needs, to be innovative in their approach to new academic standards and practices, and to cultivate deeper connections with the communities they serve. Doing more of what’s working and what’s undeniably right for every young person must be the order of the day.
Join the Arts Education Partnership (AEP) for the 2013 National Forum: Arts, Education, and the Next America. Hear from the nation’s top experts as they frame today’s most pressing education issues and provide thought-provoking ideas for empowered leadership in the arts that can improve the lives of all young people.
