There is no greater time than right now to include and support the arts in the lives of America’s students. Research tells us that the arts can connect people more deeply to the world and open them up to new ways of thinking.

By including the arts into the Every Student Succeeds Act, our elected officials have acknowledged the value of the arts and the understanding that the arts prepare students for success in school, work and life.

Thank you for providing an arts education to your students. Thank you for providing your students a world-class education.
