Schools delivering arts education programs with few dedicated resources

The first statewide Arizona Arts Education Census shows that many Arizona schools have found ways to deliver arts education programs with few dedicated resources.

Results from the statewide research show that nearly 90 percent of Arizona students have access to at least one arts education program, but that half of the schools responding to the survey reported no budget for curricular support in arts education and almost eight out of 10 schools spent less than half-a-penny a day on arts education.

The Census, conducted between March 15 and Sept. 15, 2009 by New Jersey-based Quadrant Arts Education Research on behalf of the Arizona Department of Education, and the Arizona Commission on the Arts, produced responses from 409 charter and district schools representing 236,645 students in every county and school district in the state.
