Americans for the Arts Joins National Coalition Revising the National Standards for Arts Education

Americans for the Arts’ State Arts Action Network Will Help Drive Advocacy Efforts to Adopt Revised Standards in all 50 States 

Americans for the Arts is the latest organization to join the broad coalition of stakeholders developing the new standards. The group hopes to create a product that will reflect and encompass the most current research in the arts education field, national and international developments in education, and policy directions, including Common Core State Standards and the drive to develop 21st century skills. Other NCCAS leadership organizations include the American Alliance for Theatre and Education, The College Board, National Art Education Association, National Dance Education Organization, Educational Theatre Association, National Association for Music Education, State Education Agency Directors of Arts Education, Young Audiences and arts educational leaders in the field of media arts.

Lynn Tuttle, President of the State Education Agency Directors of Arts Education (SEADAE) and an NCCAS leadership team member, said she was delighted that Americans for the Arts has become a partner in the standards project. “NCCAS is thrilled that Americans for the Arts has joined the coalition. Their support is an important boost to the new standards’ credibility and will strengthen our effort to gain widespread endorsement and adoption in the states.”
