Another thing that we are participating in. here's what it is....
Tri - M Petition and Change Drive Contest
MENC's goal is to deliver one million signatures to the Department of Education on June 18, 2009
Petitions for what? well the MENC with Tri - M wants to call on the U.S. Department of Education and all American Leaders to:
-Mandate that music and the other arts be part of every child's core curriculum;
-Ensure music and the other arts are included as a part of a balanced education addressing the whole child, to prepare them for the creative thinking necessary for success in the work force of the future;
-Ensure qualified music teachers and sequential curricula be recognized as the basis for providing all students with substantive education in music and the other arts;
-Ensure programs in music and the other arts provide rigorous instruction, monitor progress and performance through meaningful assessment, and take place within a structure of accountability to school officials, parents, and the community.
Everything is due to John Chang, me or Ms. Maloney by April 28, 2009 (Latest April 29, 2009)
It's due to the MENC by April 30.
