As we look into arts education in our upcoming webinar, we revisit the Fall 2002 Vol 13. No. 3 of the GIA Reader and read “Critical Links: A New Compendium of Research” by Nick Rabkin and “Connections between Education in the Arts and Student Achievement: Perspectives on relevant research,” by Dale Rose and Michaela Parks, which tackle the impact of the arts on academic outcomes.

“Creating a State Data Culture to Inform Investments in Arts Education” Webinar
Join a webinar to examine a collaboration between the National Endowment for the Arts and Education Commission of the States to build states’ capacity to report on the arts education data they collect. The webinar will focus on the current climate for such work in states, strategies and tools for supporting state-level data efforts, and the value of incorporating arts education data into broader efforts to promote a culture of information in states.

Hear from Ayanna Hudson, director of Arts Education at National Endowment for the Arts, and Claus von Zastrow, principal of Education Commission of the States, on June 25 as they discuss how this work complements and reinforces ongoing efforts to track arts education data at the state level.

This webinar is brought to you by the National Endowment for the Arts and Education Commission of the States, in association with Grantmakers for Education, and Grantmakers in the Arts. Details and registration here.
