NEWS - New Harris Poll Links Music Education to Advanced Studies and Higher Incomes - On November 12 at 10 a.m. Eastern Time in Washington, DC, MENC leadership will be on hand for the release and dissemination of results from a brand new Harris Poll on the impact of music education on our society. “Little Steven” Van Zandt (Bruce Springsteen band member and "The Sopranos" star) will lend his support to the poll release by making an appearance at the event. The release of this poll is timely, given MENC's recent efforts to improve music education's standing in the upcoming reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act currently being debated by Congress. Visit MENC after 11:00 a.m. on November 12 to read the press release and the Harris Poll results. The poll is expected to garner significant media attention, so watch for event coverage the evening of November 12.
