Arts in Education Week
The Ohio Alliance for Arts Education asked Governor John Kasich to designate the week of September 9, 2012 as Arts in Education Week in Ohio to coincide with National Arts in Education Week as designated in US House Concurrent Resolution 275 (July 26, 2010). The Governor noted in this designation, "During this week we encourage all Ohioans to promote and showcase the immense role arts education has in producing engaged, successful college- and career-ready students. Arts education, comprised of a rich array of disciplines including dance, music, theatre, media arts, literature, design, and visual arts, is a core academic subject and an essential element of a complete and balanced education for all students."
