8. Would you support the restoration of per-capita dedicated funding for arts education in all city schools? Why or why not?
Yes. Our City is poised to finally fund schools to provide high quality education for every student. With the state’s commitment to fully fund Foundation Aid for schools along with significant funds from the federal government to support schools as they recover from the pandemic, there is no better time to fully commit to dedicated funding for arts education across our schools. Arts education cannot be viewed as a luxury item reserved for the lucky few. It is a vital part of student learning and must be preserved in every child’s school experience.
