VH1 To Present Two Sessions At The MENC Eastern Division Conference
In a time when communities are faced with budget cutbacks and increased focus on student’s math and reading scores, it is more important than ever to have the tools to advocate for music education’s inclusion in all children’s core curriculum. VH1 Save The Music Foundation will present Why Advocate Now? How To Be Proactive Rather Than Reactive, at the MENC Eastern Division Conference in Providence, RI. The session will be held on Saturday, March 8, 2003 at 9:15 AM in the Road Convention Center.
In addition to VH1’s commitment to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation’s advocacy and music education restoration efforts, through "VH1 Music Studio," VH1’s Cable In The Classroom initiative, VH1 provides commercial free, copyright cleared educational programming available to be taped and used to enhance the standards based curriculum. Attendees of the MENC Eastern Division Conference will have the opportunity to attend ?VH1 Music Studio How To Access Innovative Cable In The Classroom Educational Television Programming,? on Saturday, March 8, 2003 at 12:15 AM in the RI Convention Center.
