Arts Impact has released a report showing that arts-infused learning in reading and math eliminates the achievement gap between children of color and poverty and their white upper/middle class peers. These results were obtained as part of a U.S. Department of Education grant project between Arts Impact and Seattle Public Schools called Arts Impact Dissemination and Expansion (AIDE). Read the report.
Arts Infused Learning Closes Opportunity Gap
“As a principal, I was thinking “When will we ever get to the arts?” We saw this opportunity and realized this was our chance. ArtsEd Washington gave us the vehicle to get aligned and focused. Parents and visitors have commented that they feel a different energy when they walk through the halls.”
