Every young person in America deserves a complete and competitive education that
includes the arts. America’s global stature, culture of innovation, and entrepreneurial
spirit depend on the strength of a world-class education system. Perhaps now
more than ever—as the country becomes increasingly diverse, the world more
interconnected, and the workplace more oriented around technology and creativity—
arts education is key to such a system and to ensuring students’ success in school,
work, and life.
For this reason, the Arts Education Partnership (AEP) created
nation’s first clearinghouse of research examining the mounting body of evidence on
the benefits of an arts education. Drawing on the research in ArtsEdSearch, this bulletin
offers a snapshot of how the arts support achievement in school, bolster skills demanded
of a 21st century workforce, and enrich the lives of young people and communities.
