The NAMM Foundation has announced the results of its 13th annual Best Communities for Music Education(BCME) survey, which acknowledges schools and districts across the U.S. for their commitment and support for music education as part of the core curriculum.
In all, 176 communities were recognized during a crucial time as school districts nationwide finalize budgets. The Best Community designation is a distinction worthy of pride, but is also a call to action for local music education advocates to help preserve and potentially expand access to their current music education programs. Each school receiving the “Best Communities” designation scored in the 80th percentile or higher in the survey’s grading process.
