From Harford County Public Schools:
The [National Association of Music Merchants] NAMM Foundation has named Harford County Public Schools one of the 2011 “Best Communities for Music Education” through a survey that acknowledges schools and districts across the U.S. for their commitment and support of music education in schools.
As the economy challenges state and local school budgets to adequately support education, the 174 school districts named by the NAMM Foundation demonstrate the unwavering commitment to provide music education for their students. The NAMM Foundation’s mission is to ensure that all children have access to quality music education programs that encourage lifelong participation in music making. Congratulations to the HCPS Music Department!
