At NAMM Show, President's Committee on the Arts & Humanities to Unveil Student Achievement Research

On Thursday, during the opening day of the 2015 NAMM Show, the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH), the NAMM Foundation, and several top musicians will jointly unveil research on student achievement within PCAH’s groundbreaking Turnaround Arts program. This will take place from  on 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (PST). The Turnaround Arts initiative is a PCAH program, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Education and the White House Domestic Policy Council, to help turn around low-performing schools, narrow the achievement gap, and increase student engagement through the arts.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Drummer Chad Smith, Trombone Shorty, and Citizen Cope are three of the program’s “Turnaround Artists,” who have been working with students in schools participating in the Turnaround Arts program. They will join PCAH Executive Director Rachel Goslins to unveil new research that examines the progress students have made while engaged with the program.

To RSVP or for more details, contact Gabriela Melendez at or 202-464-6964.
