Thinking hopefully about the problems and possibilities of school music education, particularly in the United States, I would like to suggest a number of ways in which we might think and act more broadly, inclusively, humanely, and musically toward transforming our thought and practice. Rather than espousing change for change's sake, or novelty for novelty's sake, I urge stakeholders in music education to critically reflect on the past from which we have come and the present situation that we face, to converse about the ways in which music education needs to change in the future, and to act in solidarity on behalf of not only school music but general education in the public sphere also.
