5. As students, principals, teachers, and school partners work to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on academic achievement, what role do you see the arts playing? What strategies do you envision for broadening the school-day curriculum so instructional time in the arts is not crowded out of the school day?
I am committed to ensuring there is a wide array of arts offerings in every school, including in school, after school and weekend programming and education.
I have called for the use of federal relief funding for education to be used to expand learning opportunities to help students recover from the educational impacts of the pandemic. Arts education and programming would play a critical role in those opportunities.
