Under this Committee, the Obama Administration created an impressive education legacy, of which the arts are a critical part. This session will demonstrate in action the arts education opportunities provided by Turnaround Arts (TA), an arts education initiative that uses the arts as a tool to reform some of the nation’s lowest performing schools. The session will help participants understand the ways in which local communities can leverage the arts through new education legislation (ESSA) and understand the methodology by which TA has achieved academic success.
