Abstract:

This report responds to questions posed by school and community leaders throughout the United States about public school districts that have made competence in the arts, as well as literacy, one of the fundamental goals of education for students. Ninety-one school districts are featured in this report, but hundreds more were identified by state and national education and arts organizations as having outstanding arts education throughout their schools. The report provides information about how school districts developed and sustained arts education in the face of the enormous pressure to prove the success of their schools by accountability measures that focus largely on reading, mathematics, and writing. It documents practices used by the school districts to address staffing and program and resource needs. The central finding of this report is that the critical factor in sustaining arts education in schools is the active involvement of influential segments of the community in shaping and implementing the policies and programs from each school district.
