Tucker, Carrie
Educational Research Service
What is the place of the arts in our schools? In a world of high-stakes testing and accountability, can schools "afford" to teach the arts? This "Informed Educator" explores why many who have studied this issue consider the arts to have an important role in the curriculum. Examples of the ways some leaders effectively communicate the benefits of the arts are presented. Elements of effective arts programs are also explored, along with suggestions for their implementation. (Contains 2 tables.)
