Kessler, Richard; James, Jerry; Fineberg, Carol
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v77 n1 p62-64 Sep 2011
Arts education may well be one of the most important ingredients of an effective education. The story of the School Arts Support Initiative (SASI) serves as an exemplar of dynamic urban middle grades communities that seek to build and sustain a rich, holistic education for students in an era defined by high-stakes accountability. As this story indicates, an arts-rich education can profoundly improve student learning in middle grades schools.
