The Art of Education

Dr. Robert F. Sabol, professor of visual and performing arts at Purdue University says that art education has suffered some serious setbacks since No Child Left Behind--the landmark federal education law that put a greater emphasis on high-stakes testing. Since No Child Left Behind became law in 2002, school systems--under increased pressure to raise student proficiency rates in the "core" subjects of reading and math--have less money to spend on materials such as paint and clay, and art instructors have less time to teach students what to do with those things, a Sabol study found. But now--as the Obama administration grants states more flexibility under No Child Left Behind and state and local educators work to implement a new set of education standards known as the Common Core State Standards--art educators are hopeful that they can restore art education to what they believe is its rightful place.
