  • EdTA Update: Stop COVID-19 from cutting off theatre education

    The Educational Theatre Association believes that Congress must appropriate at least $200 billion specifically for education to help states avoid drastic negative consequences; many other education organizations are advocating for the same or similar amount. Without this funding, the inclusion of theatre as part of our students’ well-rounded education will be in serious jeopardy.

    We are asking you to reach out to your members of Congress to request $200 billion to backfill state education budgets in the next legislative relief package. EdTA is partnering with the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) in a coordinated outreach to Federal legislators throughout the country.
