Poverty of Diverse Dance Readings
McCarthy-Brown, Nyama
Arts Education Policy Review, v116 n1 p30-42 2015
This article synthesizes current dance education research that demonstrates connections between the culturally relevant pedagogy and student academic achievement, details why the arts are exponentially important and valuable to all communities, and provides practical solutions for the everyday teacher. Through a pointed focus on culturally relevant reading materials the research presented herein supports and advocates for educational policy designed to diversify arts curricula. Only when the diversity in our curricula reflects the diversity of our communities can our educational system affirm a multicultural world.
