School Music Education and Change
Jorgensen, Estelle R.
Music Educators Journal, v96 n4 p21-27 2010
Thinking hopefully about the problems and possibilities of school music education, particularly in the United States, the author suggests a number of ways in which music educators might think and act more broadly, inclusively, humanely, and musically toward transforming their thought and practice. Rather than espousing change for change's sake, or novelty for novelty's sake, the author urges stakeholders in music education to critically reflect on the past from which music educators have come and the present situation that music educators face, to converse about the ways in which music education needs to change in the future, and to act in solidarity on behalf of not only school music but general education in the public sphere also. (Contains 29 notes.)
