The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) enacted in 2015 included several important arts education provisions that will systemically embed the arts into K–12 public education. With the new Administration in office, there are many new questions about the future of public education in the US and how the implementation of ESSA, including the provisions integrating the arts, will unfold. In this session, Alex Nock from Penn Hill Group will discuss the most up-to-date developments with ESSA implementation and arts education policy and how funders and organizations working at the local level can advocate for providing all students with equitable access to a well-rounded education.
