Arts Education Week. I never heard about it. Did you?

On July 26, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution designating the second week of September as “Arts in Education Week.” The resolution (H.Con.Res. 275) was proposed and introduced by Rep. Jackie Speier from California.

The resolution states: […] Arts education, comprising a rich array of disciplines including dance, music, theatre, media arts, literature, design, and visual arts, is a core academic subject and an essential element of a complete and balanced education for all students.

I read about it here.


  1. I gotta say that, “…Arts education…is a core academic subject and… an element of a balanced education…” resonates very strongly with me.

    So the Federal Gov’t isn’t all bad 🙂

  2. Nope … sometimes they get things right! Go figure!
