Image for Mayor Emanuel Announces $1 Million Investment in Arts Education for Chicago Public Schools

May 22, 2013

Mayor Rahm Emanuel was joined last week by internationally-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma to announce that the City is committing $1 million towards implementing the first Arts Education Plan for the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) next school year, ensuring that all students have high-quality arts instruction. The announcement was made during Guild member Chicago Children’s Choir Paint the Town Red concert.

“Every child in this city deserves a quality education, no matter where they live. Incorporating the arts into all levels of education is an essential piece in helping our children thrive,” said Mayor Emanuel. “For the first time, our schools have a comprehensive Arts Education Plan that aligns them with Chicago’s Cultural Plan and opens new possibilities for our children.”
