Next Saturday, June 14 the Partnership for Music Education Policy Development will host a Music Education Policy Summit from 9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. on the campus of Michigan State University at the Cook Recital Hall in the MSU Music Building.
The purpose of the Summit is to examine the most pressing needs regarding music education policy in the state of Michigan. The morning session will focus on policy from a legislative/political perspective. The afternoon session will examine policy from the perspective of the educator. Both sessions will feature guest speakers and a panel discussion with opportunity for questions and dialogue to take place between participants and the Summit attendees.
Presenters and guests will include State Senator Rebekah Warren, State Representative Adam Zemke, State Board of Education President John Austin, and State Board of Education member Eileen Weiser. Other education stakeholders—including school administrators, elementary, secondary, college/university music educators, professional musicians, and active educational researchers—will also be in attendance.
This event is free, and registration will take place on-site starting at 9:00am the date of the event. You can RSVP on their Facebook event page HERE. For more information, contact PMEPD President Rick Catherman by email at: [email protected].
