Dear Arts Education Network member,On Friday, the U.S. Department of Education released new guidance relating to a Well-Rounded Education. The publication of this guidance demonstrates the value of long-term dedicated advocacy for arts education. We celebrate this new support for arts education in ESSA and will continue to work with education stakeholders to realize the promise of supporting the arts in K-12 curriculums across the country. You can listen to Education Secretary John King’s Friday announcement of this program online here.Attached is a memo for State and Local Arts Education leaders summarizing the new guidance from the U.S. Department of Education.Thank you for your advocacy leadership in reaching this point, and the advocacy yet to come to fully enact these policy opportunities at home.
