"But it is our role as commissioners on the PCAH
to do so."
PCAH recommends integrating music into other classes, but AATS maintains that it must not be done at the expense of music as a core subject.
The AATS website has links to the PCAH and NEA reports and a listing of special programs that augment and support the arts.
's landmark 2011 research study, "Reinvesting in Arts
It was formed on the heels of PCAH's report, Reinvesting in Arts Education: Winning America's Future Through Creative Schools, which was released in May 2011.
"Each school is located in a city in a different region of the country and has a different set of resources," says Mary Schmidt Campbell, vice chairman of PCAH and dean of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.
This study investigated host factors and environmental factors as potential determinants of polychlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons (PCAHs) in serum of adolescents.
Polychlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons (PCAHs) such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) are contaminants of the food chain (2), are present in tobacco smoke (3, 4) and air (5, 6), and accumulate in fat tissue (1, 2).
Determinants of serum PCAHs are well documented in newborns and young children (7, 8).
We recently found in 200 Flemish adolescents that sexual maturation was slower in relation to biomarkers of exposure to polychlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons (PCAHs) (10).
The dioxin congener 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD)is the reference compound of the chemical class of PCAHs, which in addition to dioxins and PCBs also include polychlorinated dibenzofurans (17).
Pubic hair growth and age of menarche were not significantly correlated with biomarkers of exposure to PCAHs.
