GOVERNOR'S LITERACY IN THE ARTS TASK FORCE
The Governor's Literacy in the Arts Task Force was a joint effort of the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and the Rhode Island Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to examine the relationship between education reform and the arts, and to make policy recommendations on how the arts can have a significant impact on the education agenda of Rhode Island.
For an eighteen-month period (1999-2001), the Task Force met regularly to provide public opportunities for dialogue, to discuss research and to hear testimony from national and local arts and education experts and practitioners, parents, teachers and administrators. Surveys of arts learning opportunities were also conducted statewide. Copies of the Executive Summary (a brief overview of the findings and recommendations) as well as a full report can be obtained from Rhode Island State Council On The Arts or downloaded in pdf format from their website (see below).
From the Executive Summary,
We envision a Rhode Island where all children and youth have access to rich and challenging arts learning opportunities in their homes, schools and communities, thus enabling them to become creative and critical thinkers, effective communicators, responsible citizens and knowledgeable adults
At least three members of the Task Force have strong dance ties, Susan McGreevy Nicols, Ms. Marty Sprague (dance representative from the RI Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance and a dance educator at Roger Williams Middle School) and Dr.Edward Scheff (RI Alliance for Arts Education).
