Here we are heading into another school year and, once again, communities all across America are struggling with funding cutbacks that affect teachers, school programs and school facilities. Much like marketing is the first department to be cut back when a business has to downsize, the arts education departments are the first to lose funding when schools are in trouble. This is evident just by looking at the history of our government's National Endowment for the Arts program: back in 1992, we were funding it at $176 million a year and now it's only $146 million. Contrary to what many of our political leaders think, the arts in school are essential to creating the innovative workforce of tomorrow.

According to this group's definition, these are children "who demonstrate or show the potential for high performance and it is our responsibility to provide the optimal educational experience to fully develop the talents of as many children as possible, for the benefit of the individual and the community."
