The Creative Coalition encourages lawmakers to support arts funding as a budget priority that will pay back the nation exponentially.
"Art is the single educational resource and teaching tool that may be used effectively across every curriculum discipline to educate, motivate and activate students. We have the hard numbers to prove unequivocally that when arts are included in a curriculum, drop-out rates fall and test scores go up," said Ms. Bronk. "Furthermore, the economic development that arts infuse into a community -- where every dollar spent on the arts multiplies exponentially -- cannot be overstated. One could say that the arts ‘makes' a village."
The congressional hearing followed on the heels of the newly galvanized Congressional STEAM Caucus.
