This should be interesting, unfortunately I will be teaching at these times so I can't make it. I'm looking forward to seeing the results though. With all of the cuts school districts are making around the state, I'm sure the 'state of arts education' is going to continue to decline.
P.S. When I hear of the results, I will post them here.
Educators, Administrators, Artists, Arts Advocates, Parents, Students & Community Leaders:
You are cordially invited to attend a rollout event for the release of Measuring Up: New Hampshire Arts Education Data Project Report. The report includes findings from the 2008-09 school-by-school arts survey plus recommendations and actions for strengthening arts education in our state. Two events, both free and open to the public, are planned:
Wednesday, March 9, 3:00 p.m. Thursday, March 10, 2:30 p.m.
RSVPs are appreciated. Please click here to view the e-vite and to reserve a seat at either the March 9 or 10th event: For additional information about the project, visit the Measuring Upwebsite: www.aannh.org/measuringup. Videostreaming is available for the Gorham rollout; email us at email@example.com if you would like instructions for viewing.
Bob Morrison, lead researcher for the project and founder of Quadrant Arts Education Research, will present at both events. Mr. Morrison is recognized for supporting arts education through his work at VH1 Save the Music and his leadership among states with their arts data collection projects.
Tomie dePaola, award-winning NH author and illustrator, will speak at the Manchester event.
New Hampshire Fiddler Patrick Ross and his apprentice Dalton Binette will play at the Gorham rollout.
Thank you! We hope to see you next week.
Marcia McCaffrey, New Hampshire Department of Education
Catherine O'Brian, New Hampshire State Council on the Arts

Please forward this invitation to other teachers, education leaders, parents, artists and arts advocates who are interested in this work.
