The Arts Education Partnership (AEP), a division of the Council of Chief State School Officers, produced this new research bulletin that offers an evidenced-based snapshot of how the arts support achievement in school while bolstering the skills demanded of a 21st century workforce and enrich the lives of young people and communities. It draws upon a body of research in the Arts Education Partnership's ArtsEdSearch.org and highlights the relevancy to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics.
