Does Experience in the Arts Boost Academic Achievement?
Eisner, Elliot W.
Clearing House, v72 n3 p143-49 Jan-Feb 1999
Finds only a very limited research basis for claims about the effects of art experience on academic achievement. Identifies three levels to which arts education contributes: arts-based, arts-related, and ancillary outcomes of art education. Discusses four contributions arts education makes to the arts and to life beyond them. (SR)
