“Waiving” Goodbye to No Child Left Behind

On Wednesday, December 9, the Senate passed the Every Student Succeeds Act 85-12, on the heels of its passage in the House last week.This year, Americans for the Arts developed a national petition to the members of Congress serving on the conference committee to voice support for retaining arts-friendly provisions within the bill. Combined, almost 20,000 individuals signed the petition. Happily, many of these provisions made it into the final bill. Support for a well-rounded education that includes the arts, arts education funding, and thanks to the efforts of Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) on the conference committee, the inclusion of the arts in STEM courses - are all arts education highlights. In the new bill there are no more defined core academic subjects, but instead there is clear support for well-rounded education, which is defined, and includes the arts. - See more at: http://www.americansforthearts.org/news-room/art-in-the-news/senate-passes-every-student-succeeds-act#sthash.Yd68U6jm.dpuf
