New Report from National Endowment of the Arts

Love it!

“At-risk youths with a history of intensive arts experiences enjoy better academic outcomes and are more civically engaged than disadvantaged students who largely miss out on the arts, finds a new report from the National Endowment for the Arts.”

“The benefits can be seen across a variety of measures, from test scores and school grades to honors-society memberships, high school graduation, and college enrollment and attainment. In addition, these young people are more likely to get involved with volunteer activities and local politics.”
