Public Review of NAfME Position Statements


Public Review of NAfME Position Statements

In September 2016, the National Executive Board of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) began a review of all current position statements that currently appear on the NAfME website.  Contexts have changed since a number of these were officially approved and adopted by the Association.  We are undertaking this review to (1) determine if the position statement is still relevant, (2) to update the content, where appropriate, and (3) to provide a more concise and consistent format for all position statements. The first two position statements, one dealing with equity and access to music education for our nation’s students, the other focusing on diversity and inclusivity within the music classroom and music education profession, have completed the review process and were adopted by the Board in June 2017.

Public Review – February 2018

NAfME is pleased to provide our members and the public with the opportunity to provide input on revised position statements. Currently, we have two statements, one on advocacy, one on early childhood education, available for you review. You can review the draft statements listed above and provide feedback via a brief survey. Please provide your feedback no later than March 9, 2018.
