The Impact of Education Reform on Music Education: Paradigm Shifts in Music Education Curriculum, Advocacy, and Philosophy from "Sputnik" to Race to the Top
Branscome, Eric E.
Arts Education Policy Review, v113 n3 p112-118 2012
President Obama recently described America's current economic, societal, educational, and technological circumstances as "our generation's 'Sputnik' moment." If history repeats itself in the twenty-first century, music educators may face a situation similar to that which developed in the 1960s concerning the impact of education reform on music education. The purpose of this article is to identify possible trends in music curriculum, advocacy, and philosophy that may have developed in response to U.S. education reform, and to identify ways in which these trends may help music educators prepare for future innovations.
