March is Arts Education Month and from now until the end of March our friends at Create CA are sharing small weekly actions we can all take to support the movement for arts education. Here’s this week’s action:
Look up your data and see where your district or school stands!
The California Arts Education Data Project has been updated with new branding, tools, and data!
The new data shows that California went from a 39% average participation rate to 40%. That means more students are taking at least one arts class. Which is great! But progress is still way too slow.
It is our belief that in order to expand access to arts education in our schools and communities we absolutely have to know where we stand. So please check out the Interactive Dashboard and learn about the growth and gaps in arts education equity across the state!
