Planning To Make the Arts Basic: A Report to the National Endowment for the Arts on the Impact and Results of the Arts in Schools Basic Education Grants Program.
Stevens, Louise K.
This report is an overview of events that have taken place over the last 4 years to further efforts to make the arts part of what every schoolchild learns in every grade. The report recounts how the Arts in Schools Basic Education Grants (AISBEG), a targeted federal pilot project of the National Endowment for the Arts, has stimulated change at the state level and in classrooms around the country. A chart presents a state-by-state breakdown of program grants for fiscal years 1987 through 1990. Part 1 of the report sets out "AISBEG Goals and Response." Part 2 looks at "Defining Planning." Part 3 of the report presents "Implications for the Future: Conclusions and Recommendations." Each of the parts includes a table of contents. Profiles describing each state's participation in the program also appear in the report as does a listing of national arts and education organizations. (SG)
