The Role of Fine Arts in Missouri Public Schools. Position Paper.
Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City.
Fine arts, defined as visual and performing arts, are basic subjects with content that can be taught, learned, and evaluated. As part of the core curriculum, every pre-K through 12 student in Missouri should be taught a balanced, comprehensive, and sequential arts program by certified fine arts teachers. Knowledge-based programs must have outcome-based objectives. Conditions and expectations for teaching fine arts suggest the necessity for pre-service and in-service teacher education. (MM)
