Doubling down on what works

IMG_0409

Last month, National Council on the Arts met and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) revealed their new four-point plan for arts education, under the leadership of new Director of Education Ayanna Hudson.

  1. Double down on what works – leverage investment in programs that have proven to be effective.
  2. Drive National Data & Research Agenda – collect standardized data about resources, frequency, content, and quality in arts education across all 50 states.
  3. Collaborate for Collective Impact – partner with organizations to develop a coordinated national strategy for arts education
  4. Lead the Field – provide the field with arts education resources, information, publications, and professional development.

This framework shows promises for success in driving the arts education agenda.  We look forward to the day when the NEA’s vision of “every student is engaged and empowered through an excellent arts education” is realized.
