Greetings to all of the readers here at the Indiana Art Education Advocacy Action Blog."
This year, the children at my school, New Palestine Elementary are thriving once again in our choice based art program.
Sadly, I am not happy to report, our school district like many school districts across the country is suffering from a shortage of operating funds.
This development has put the future viability of elementary art education program experiences for the children of New Palestine Elementary in jeopardy.
Fortunately the administration of Southern Hancock Schools and a significant number of community members in New Palestine are working to pass a referendum in order to strengthen our schools and to keep important educational programs like elementary art and music in the curricula.
If you live in our district and would like to learn more about what you can do to support the Southern Hancock Schools pass the education funding referendum, check out this link: Vote Yes!
