Music and other arts are no longer extracurricular and optional. The Federal government states that music and other arts are core-academic subjects, Parents for Music and Arts (PMA) and Students for Music and Arts (SMA) is a combined effort of local parents, students and community leaders. We band together as a powerful arts and civil rights advocacy to restore and expand music and arts for all with equal access. Through PMA and SMA, your voice will be heard and together we will advocate on behalf of student rights under the protection of the U.S. Constitution.

Unequal–Access [to] Education Rule: What is tested gets taught; what is not tested gets unequal or denied access. While students of advantage learn to outsource, the disadvantaged learn to grow up without an equal-opportunity education.
