data about arts education is a prerequisite for knowing how much and to whom arts education is being delivered in schools.
These data can help decision-makers determine whether they are meeting national and state-approved policies and content standards regarding arts education.
In addition, these data can help state departments of education, state arts agencies, funders, and others to direct resources to increase the likelihood that all students will benefit from an education that includes the arts.
