Students in Grand Island Public Schools in Grand Island, Nebraska, are experiencing more access to arts and music education, as well as resources, because of the collaborative advocacy and work of supporters and decision makers. Join host Jazzmone Sutton and Dr. Evan Lee, the Curriculum Coordinator for Fine Arts and Social Studies for Grand Island Public Schools, as they discuss using federal funds to support students by removing barriers in order to create a vision where all students can participate in music education.
