I just attended the annual conference of the NAEA (National Art Education Association) in Baltimore. Despite the dire economy the convention was attended by 4,000 art teachers! They have passion and energy, but they don't have a way to convince decision-makers and the general public how critically important high quality arts education is for our kids and for our country's future. Many spoke of draconian cuts that will most likely be implemented by this fall either severely reducing programs and staff or in some cases eliminating them completely. We need a national campaign that opens the public's eyes and hearts to the need for save arts in our schools!
