Making the Case
While we know the positive impact that study of the arts has children’s achievement, arts education is often the first thing to be cut because of budget concerns. Today, the erosion of arts education in America’s public schools has reached a crisis level, even as global competition makes our need to prepare an innovative, creative future workforce more acute. Now more than ever, our kids deserve arts education in their schools.
Your gift will support Americans for the Arts’ ongoing work to provide parents and teachers nationwide with the appropriate tools to make the case for arts education in our public schools. Check out online resources like our Ten Tips for Parents to learn more about what you can do to advocate for arts education and familiarize yourself with the movement that we are helping to support in school districts throughout the United States to put the arts back into our schools.
