As noted in NEA Resolution B-45, NEA believes that high-quality arts education taught by licensed, certified arts educators is part of a balanced, comprehensive education. Without the necessary and ongoing resources to support such a program, however, arts education gets tossed aside. When that happens, the students—and the community—suffer.

NEA developed this Arts Advocacy Resource Guide for use by students, educators, and supportive community patrons as they advocate to keep arts education alive in public schools. The Guide compiles resources from the major fine arts education organizations such as the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA), the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), the National Art Education Association (NAEA), the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO), and Americans for the Arts. These resources feature effective advocacy campaigns, and highlight the roles that students and their families, educators, and supportive community patrons can play.t by licensed, certified arts educators is part of a balanced, comprehensive education.
