In prep for our Advocacy Meeting, some people may be interested in reading the Diane Ravitch article in the The New York Review of Books written in response to Davis Guggenheim's movie/documentary "Waiting
for Superman". The movie was also featured on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and was the subject of major stories in Time and New York. This is the link: http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2010/nov/11/myth-charter-schools/

In addition, the screening of the movie "Race to Nowhere" will be Thursday Dec 2 at 7pm, Cape Cinema, Dennis. This is the same afternoon/evening of our K-12 Student Art Exhibition Opening so many of us will be there anyway. Look at some on-line clips at: http://www.racetonowhere.com/

||VOICE for the ARTS
The Arts Action Fund graded the members of the U.S. Senate on their support for the arts just like on those report cards that you used to bring home - except we used criteria like voting in support of the arts, joining the Senate Arts Caucus, and more. Senators had three opportunities to vote on the arts during the past two years—from including the arts in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to supporting public art along our nation’s highways to ensuring museums received federal funds. Your senators had the chance to stand up for the arts and many of them rose to the occasion.
If you would like your name listed as a supporter of the arts, please contact us!
