Question by Brian: does the “National Endowment of the Arts and Humanities Act” support art programs in public schools?
I am writing an essay in regards to Lyndon B Johnson, and his “Great Society” initiative. I have to pick 3 things he promoted, advocated, and signed into law, that greatly impacted the modern world (i.e. myself) today. I have already picked The Voting Rights Act, The Elementary and Secondary Education Act, but I need to know if the “National Endowment of the Arts and Humanities Act” supports art, music, history classes, etc in public schools? I downloaded the PDF of the piece of legislation, and it says in Article 9:
“Americans should receive in school, background and preparation in the arts and humanities to enable them to recognize and appreciate the aesthetic dimensions of our lives, the diversity of excellence that comprises our cultural heritage, and artistic and scholarly expression.”
but it doesn’t necessarily say “this act will fund music in school”. Ya know? I have also read online that conservatives have tried to abolish this act and remove its funding, which I’m trying to directly correlate to the fact that Music and Art programs are being cut from public schools. Any help, with reliable sources would be MUCH MUCH appreciated. Thank you!!
actually, I just found this section within the piece of legislation…:
“954a. Access to the arts through support of education
The purposes of this section are -
(1) to increase accessibility to the arts through providing education to all
Americans, including diverse cultures, urban and rural populations by
encouraging and developing quality education in the arts at all levels, in
conjunction with programs of nonformal education for all age groups, with
formal systems of elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education;
(2) to develop and stimulate research to teach quality education in the arts; and
(3) to encourage and facilitate the work of artists, arts institutions, and Federal,
State, regional, and local agencies in the area of education in the arts.”
is this evidence irrefutable for my argument in correlating the republicans’ attempt at removing music and art in school??
