Music education is an important issue and one near and dear to Gov. Hickenlooper, who is a musician himself. The Governor has crusaded to change the fact that 28,000 students in Colorado attend schools that don’t offer arts education and 50 percent of Colorado high school students are not in art classes. Gov. Hickenlooper had this to say about music education:
“Study after study shows that music learning supports other learning—from language development to improved test scores in countless subjects. But it’s so much more: music is crucial to creating a unique and vibrant culture. If Colorado wants to ensure everyone has access to a high-quality education, we must expand access to music education.”
