The U.S. House of Representatives has declared the second week of September to be Arts in Education Week. Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) authored and introduced H. Con. Res. 275, which is the first Congressional attempt to truly support all the disciplines of arts education. According to Americans for the Arts, "the resolution seeks to support the attributes of arts education that are recognized as instrumental to developing a well-rounded education such as creativity, imagination, and cross-cultural understanding."
