As a nation, we are close to reaching a collective understanding
that all students benefit from the opportunity to learn about and
experience the arts. Study of the arts in its many forms—whether
as a stand-alone subject or integrated into the school curriculum—
is increasingly accepted as an essential part of achieving success
in school, work and life.

arts education, commissioned by Americans for the Arts, revealed
strong public support.Among the findings:
86% agree an arts education
encourages and assists in
the improvement of a child’s
attitudes toward school.
93% agree the arts are vital
to providing a well-rounded
education for children,
a 2% increase over 2001.
83% believe that arts education
helps teach children to
with adults and peers.
79% agree incorporating the arts
into education is the first step
in adding back what’s missing
in public education today.
