Why I Support Arts Education

The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic…music, dance, painting, and theater are keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.

–William Bennett, Former US Secretary of Education

"The future belongs to young people with an education and the imagination to create."

–President Barack Obama

"A broad education in the arts helps give children a better understanding of their world…We need students who are culturally literate as well as math and science literate."

–Paul Ostergard, Vice President, Citicorp
