While it is disheartening that arguments for music education have existed for over one hundred years, it is a pleasure to realize that educators often had amazing allies. During a recent research visit to the Center for Dewey Studies I came across 1902 correspondence in which John Dewey argued to keep music education at the University of Chicago Laboratory School. Below, I share an abbreviated version as a contribution to Music in Our Schools Month, particularly for those currently working to keep quality programs in place during difficult economic times.
