Stand up for arts education with CE students!

Our students were excited to hear that the DC State Board of Education (DCSBOE) proposed doubling the number of arts credits needed to graduate. They also noticed that the wording erased the distinction between visual and performing arts.Students feared that without this distinction, some schools might eliminate all visual or all performing arts classes to deal with budget cuts.

Last week, our students testified at the DCSBOE meeting to request that the new requirements maintain the increase in arts requirements, but also ensure that schools maintain both visual and performing arts. Support their campaign by signing the petition.


A Note from Our Students
"To show your support and to help out the youth, please sign the petition so that we can hold the SBOE members accountable."
