2. What policies or legislation regarding arts education have you supported in the past?

I am a first time candidate. However, in the upcoming week I will be releasing my education platform, which funds and expands art programs in every single public school. A Wiley administration would dismantle the high stakes testing machine and instead infuse the arts across the curriculum, providing daily arts education programming for all of the city’s students in every year of the system, including in non-arts focused high schools. My administration proposes redistributing money that is currently being spent on testing contracts, Discovery, test prep, tests, test administration, and test grading to fully fund arts programming in every school, 3K-12th grade. As Mayor, I will end gifted and talented testing, which will free up $5 million for arts funding.
