On March 4th, PMEA leadership met with leaders in the General Assembly and received a proclamation from Representative Eddie Day Pashinski (a former music teacher) designating March as Music In Our Schools Month. Our meetings with members of the General Assembly left us feeling very hopeful that the days of cuts to education are nearing their end. The devil is still in the details but this is the most optimistic reaction we’ve heard from policy makers in recent years. Here’s a quick video highlighting the event: https://www.youtube.
But, it doesn’t just happen. We need your help. We need PMEA members to show up at the Capitol in Harrisburg with us on March 25. That’s one day before the conference so come in a day early and bring some students with you too!
