Arizona featured in National Report: Engaging the Arts in the Broader Education Policy Landscape

Our partners and colleagues from Arts Education Partnership recently published a report “Engaging the Arts in the Broader Education Policy Landscape” which explores education policy areas where Arts Education can can expand policy solutions! Arizona was highlighted as an example for the emphasis we place on Equity in terms of access to high quality Arts Education instruction. Our intense focus on infusing the Arts within our Title I schools has resulted in a partnership between the Arizona Commission on the Arts and the Arizona Department of Education that produced the “Strengthening Schools through the Arts Partnership Grants“.

“…across school type, grade level and arts discipline, arts programs connected to a school’s school improvement plan or capacity building efforts had a significant impact on academic achievement, student engagement and student self-efficacy.”
