A STEAM Victory!
Art Education had a breakthrough moment this week. U.S. Representative Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) offered an amendment to integrate the arts into the nation’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs.
On November 19, Rep. Bonamici’s amendment to integrate the arts into STEM and promote a well-rounded education was approved unanimously. This amendment advances the arts in the nation’s K-12 education system with a tremendous impact. The final votes of the bill will take place the first week of December.
