| Affirmation for Arts in Education
Former U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige wrote a letter to more than 16.000 public school superintendents emphasizing the importance of arts education.
Only one state was mentioned as an example of finding innovative ways in the use of arts education as a core subject matter. We are proud to say that state is Arizona.
While in office, Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne developed a "content rich initiative" to give students the opportunity to excel in school through the arts.
A nationwide study found that students exposed to the arts were more advanced in every academic area, with language testing up 30 percent for students who get arts education and 55 percent for students where English is their second language.
In a state where we are often ranked low on so many issues, it is refreshing to be a leader in such an important one.
Kudos to Mr. Horne for the ground work.
Please support the arts programs in your schools. Give your children exposure to a world of fascination and wonder that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
