EWA Webinar: What About the Arts?

Decades of research suggest that some types of arts education can lead to academic improvements. But even though No Child Left Behind designated arts a core subject, student access to dance, theater and visual arts declined between 2000 and 2010. What are the challenges educators face in teaching a discipline many researchers say spurs student achievement, reduces absences and boosts graduation rates? 

Join us today at 1 p.m. EDT and delve deep into the crucial role arts education can play in a student’s overall academic achievement. We’ll look at state-level arts education policy, student access to arts programs, the arts education research landscape, and offer a spotlight on city programs that are galvanizing arts education.
