A 2020 Action Agenda for Advancing the Arts in Education

"The Arts Leading the Way to Student Success: A 2020 Action Agenda for Advancing the Arts in Education" will serve as the blueprint for the collective work of the Arts Education Partnership for the next five years. By addressing the four priority areas highlighted in this Action Agenda, the Partnership will be moving toward the goal that, by the year 2020, every young person in America, at every grade level, will have equitable access to high quality arts learning opportunities, both during the school day and out-of-school time.

New Reports

Education Commission of the States has two new reports. First, ESSA’s Well-Rounded Education, reviews the definition of a well-rounded education and how states can support the success of their students through a comprehensive curriculum. Second, Collaborative Stakeholder Engagement offers a framework for going beyond simply engaging stakeholders for input to collaborating with them to create shared goals and improved results.
