Hallmark, Elizabeth F. – Arts Education Policy Review, 2012
An immediate critical task of the arts education field is to resolve the polarities of low-quality integrative and overly marginalized discipline-specific approaches to teaching in schools. In pursuing this challenge, the author defines three teaching approaches--arts as craftsmanship, arts as play, and arts as inquiry--and calls for re-weighted…

Edgar, Scott – Arts Education Policy Review, 2012
Assessment of arts educators, including music educators, has evolved into a high-stakes situation that drives teacher pay, promotion, and retention.

Wexler, Mathias – Arts Education Policy Review, 2012
Music education in K-12 school programs may continue to lose ground to other subjects unless music education and performance studies are viewed as interdependent.

Kapalka Richerme, Lauren – Arts Education Policy Review, 2012
The 1957 launch of "Sputnik" and the 1983 publication of "A Nation at Risk" shifted national education policy. Music educators promoted an "intrinsic value" of music philosophy following "Sputnik" and music advocacy through politics and public performances following "A Nation at Risk." Examining the history of both the intrinsic value philosophy…

West, Chad – Arts Education Policy Review, 2012
Prior research suggests that the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) is having an adverse effect on school music programs, particularly in schools that have not made "adequate yearly progress." In many instances, music programs are being reduced or eliminated, music teachers are being required to assist with the teaching of other subjects,…

D'Andrea, Marisol – Arts Education Policy Review, 2012
The rhetoric of the creative economy agenda has influenced the revised Ontario curriculum in the arts for grades 9-12. Yet, increasing rhetorical and substantive support for a creative economy agenda in Ontario at large is not sufficiently reflected in the revised Ontario arts curriculum. The expanded agenda is not matched by expanded substantive…

Bonbright, Jane; McGreevy-Nichols, Susan – Arts Education Policy Review, 2012
The field of dance arts education in the United States is in an entirely different place today than it was at the turn of the century. Much of this change is due to a convergence of events that involved: federal and state legislation, policy, and funding that supported dance in arts education; a forty-year transition of dance out of departments of…
