I'm afraid the Getty has been given more credit than it deserves. The
Annenberg Foundation is not part of the Getty Education Institute or the J.
Paul Getty Trust. Perhaps some confusion has arisen from the
Annenberg challenge grant received by a consortium of regional
institutes funded by the Education Institute--the same kind of challenge
grant received by New York City schools.

Here's the scoop: The Annenberg Foundation grant is part of a $500
million, five-year challenge to the nation, designed to energize and
support promising efforts to reform the public education of children
nationwide. The arts education grant will provide funds for teachers'
professional development, implementation of arts curricula and school
reform strategies, and the measurement of student achievement. This
grant comes at a time when the Annenberg Foundation has also
awarded grants to restore the arts in the New York City public school
curriculum and to help support the unique role of the arts, culture, and
technology in school reform.

Contact the Center for Arts Education in New York City at 212/575-8549
for more information about their program.

Please note our new name and address:

The Getty Education Institute for the Arts
