Remain or React: The Music Education Profession's Responses to "Sputnik" and "A Nation at Risk"
Kapalka Richerme, Lauren
Arts Education Policy Review, v113 n1 p35-44 2012
The 1957 launch of "Sputnik" and the 1983 publication of "A Nation at Risk" shifted national education policy. Music educators promoted an "intrinsic value" of music philosophy following "Sputnik" and music advocacy through politics and public performances following "A Nation at Risk." Examining the history of both the intrinsic value philosophy and advocacy reveals that music educators responded to "Sputnik" and "A Nation at Risk" by continuing to work within their existing language and practices rather than reacting to and transforming after either event. The political, social, and cultural contexts of these events may explain music educators' responses. (Contains 2 notes and 1 figure.)
