“I still believe that the true heroes are the excellent art educators working in Georgia’s schools every day,” he said. “I believe in the power of the arts to engage students in their education and make them more well-rounded, better-prepared, and more ready to learn. I will reaffirm today that as long as I am State School Superintendent, the fine arts will be a priority at the state level.”
The National Art Education Association (NAEA) is the professional association for art educators. Members include elementary, secondary, middle-level and high-school art teachers; university and college professors; education directors who oversee education in our nation’s fine art museums, administrators and supervisors who oversee art education in school districts, state departments of education, arts councils; and teaching artists throughout the United States and many foreign countries.
