The President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities released a report on Monday entitled: Reinvesting in Arts Education: Winning America’s Future through Creative Schools. The report is the result of 18 months of rigorous research on the effectiveness of arts education in our nation’s schools.
While the findings are staggering in their proof of the value of arts integration in schools, they are not all that surprising to those of us working in the field.
“I suppose that is what always frustrates me about reports like these – they always make a compelling case for arts education, but don’t offer strategies for putting the findings into action.”
- Volunteer with Theatre Action Project to see outstanding arts programs in action!
- Donate to Theatre Action Project to help us sustain and grow our programming
- Contact your elected officials to let them know you believe the arts are essential to a well rounded education.
- Share this report with your friends, family and community to help spread the word about the value of programs like Theatre Action Project.
