MMEA Statement on Diversity, Inclusion and Equity in Music Education

posted May 10, 2016, 10:21 AM by Mary Schaefle   [ updated May 10, 2016, 10:40 AM ]

Many music educators, musicians, and members of the public are deeply concerned about the reported remarks of Michael Butera, CEO of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). We take this matter seriously, are monitoring the situation, and encourage the National Executive Board (the governing Board for NAfME) to address the matter promptly. Minnesota Music Educators Association remains committed to diversity, inclusion and equity through high quality music education for all students. MMEA has taken initial steps to address equity over the past years, and we know there is more to be done. We plan to continue this discussion at our next Board meeting, and invite suggestions from our members and the community over the next weeks and months.
