The No Child Left Behind act, initiated over a decade ago by the U.S. federal department of education began to divert funds from arts programs, to focus more on testing of our students. Well, this has had a significant impact on the ability for learners to get a well rounded education.
Palamai Music and Recording Arts (PMRA) seeks to solve this problem by correlating music and recording arts standards and instruction to core subjects (Math, Science, English) instruction.
Additionally, it is difficult for many parents and schools to have the music instruments needed in order to carry forward an effective music program. Some districts and schools, have some form of music program already. For those schools, PMRA provides open education resources (OER’s) for educators and students to use.
