Arts Ed NJ Statement of Principles

A STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES

THE VALUE AND QUALITY OF ARTS EDUCATION

We, the undersigned representatives of professional education associations, share a deep concern about the nature, role, importance, and future of arts education in the schools where our members teach, administer, supervise, develop and implement education policy.

We are unanimous in our agreement that all New Jerseyans who share our concern about the quality of education in general, and of arts education in particular (dance, music, theatre and visual arts), should understand the value of arts education for every child, and we encourage those who will work with us to enhance and support arts education in our schools. To that end, we invite all New Jerseyans, both within the professional education community and outside it, to join us in support of the following principles.
