Schools that have removed the Arts from their curriculum due to being deemed "at risk" by the No Child Left Behind Act suffer even more. Studies have shown that graduation rates decrease with the elimination of the Arts.
That is why we should petition Arne Duncan, the U.S. Secretary of Education, to incorporate the Arts into those schools that have eliminated them from their curriculum.
We, the undersigned, call on the Department of Education to incorporate the Arts (that includes drawing, music, theater, etc.) into the core curriculum of those schools that have removed the Arts programs because the schools were deemed "at risk" by the No Child Left Behind Act.
The Add the Arts to Core Curriculum petition to Arne Duncan of the United States Department of Education was written by Aimee Miller and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
