  2. 2. <ul><li>The more music and arts classes taken, the higher the student achievement in all measures. </li></ul><ul><li>For students on “free and reduced lunch,” the more music and arts classes taken, the higher the student achievement in all measures. </li></ul><ul><li>For students divided by ethnicity, the more music and arts classes taken, the higher the student achievement in all measures. </li></ul><ul><li>The more arts classes taken, the less likely a student is to drop out. </li></ul>

  4. 10. <ul><li>Looking at last year’s high school seniors, the new data shows… </li></ul><ul><li>More arts classes = higher achievement on SAT and FCAT, and a greater likelihood of high school graduation. </li></ul><ul><li>Continue music and other arts programs. </li></ul><ul><li>Because sequential courses are most effective, maintain all levels-elementary, middle, and high. </li></ul><ul><li>Allow time and access in the schedule. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  5. 11. <ul><li>In a letter sent this month to all school and education community leaders, the U. S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan made the following points: </li></ul><ul><li>The arts are core curriculum subjects. </li></ul><ul><li>The arts play a significant role in children’s development and learning process. </li></ul><ul><li>Arts study can be especially important in improving learning among economically disadvantaged students. </li></ul><ul><li>Funding from Title I, Title II, Arts in Education grants, and ARRA funds may be used to support arts education programs. </li></ul><ul><li>This year the US DOE will conduct a survey to assess the condition of arts education in grades K-12 to help practitioners and policymakers make more informed decisions about arts education.” </li></ul>Just in from Washington, D. C.
  6. 12. What we must do <ul><li>It is up to each of us to share this news with the decision-makers in our respective schools, so that they are fully informed and able to make the best administrative choices for students. </li></ul><ul><li>Once that is accomplished, we can continue to do what we do best. That is to offer to our students the highest quality music education possible. </li></ul>
  7. 13. Remember: <ul><li>The greatest determining factor in our students’ success is the TEACHER standing before them. </li></ul><ul><li>Have a positive and effective teaching year! </li></ul>
