ASCD- Brief on policy priorities

The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) released an information brief on policy priorities entitled Reaching for a Well-Rounded Education Creates Challenges for Educators. If you are short on time I suggest you go to the link http://www.ascdpolicypriorities.org/ascdpolicypriorities/0711?utm_source=ascdexpress&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=express623#pg1 and watch the video on the first page provided by David Griffith, ASCDs Director of Public Policy. He stresses the importance of all subjects which includes the Arts.

If you have time read on from there. If not, scroll to pages 10-12 and read the segment called Promoting the Value of Arts Education. This includes information from the Executive Director of the National Art Education Association and an audio clip from an art teacher who works with students and teachers.

ASCD provides their recommendations for a well-rounded education and can be accessed at this webpage http://ascd.org/public-policy/well-rounded-education.aspx
