Arts Education Policy Lessons Learned from the Southeastern College Art Conference
Brewer, Thomas M.
Arts Education Policy Review, v110 n3 p35-39 Spr 2009
This article provides functional, moderate, and constructive arts education policy lessons drawn from the development of two Southeastern College Art Conference (SECAC) visual arts education policy statements over the past fifteen years. These lessons can help formulate action-oriented school, district, state, and national pre-kindergarten-20 educational policies to improve and advance all arts education. The article offers a history of these documents' development, two action examples, conclusions, and recommendations for current and future advocates. SECAC's most recent policy document can be found at http://www.unc.edu/~rfrew/SECAC/index.html.
