The Challenge to Reform Arts Education.

The Challenge to Reform Arts Education

Today's accelerating efforts to reform arts education in the schools have created an increasingly complex environment in which to develop new policy as public arts agencies, private foundations, universities, arts service organizations and professional arts education associations all assume leadership in the reform movement. The authors of each of this book's seven sections discuss what they see to be the cutting edge of the movement to reform the arts in educational contexts. They all give special emphasis to the role they believe research can play in improving the quality of arts instruction in our nation's schools.
