This handbook seeks to provide advocates with the tools they need to encourage arts education in the schools, particularly in New Jersey. The document includes background material on arts education and advocacy, a set of 11 reasons why the arts are basic to education, and an explanation of what constitutes a quality arts education. Under the major heading, "The How-to of Advocacy," the handbook provides tips about getting started, publicity and promotion, working within the political and education arenas, and fundraising. Chapters dealing with "The National Scene" and "The New Jersey Scene" explain organizations and activities occurring on the national and state level in support of quality arts education. "A Call to Action," the concluding chapter of the document, offers thoughts for would-be arts advocates. The handbook also includes a foreword, an introduction, acknowledgments, details about the artwork (all produced by students), footnotes and sources, a listing of other resources, and order forms.
