The Transformative Power of the Arts in Closing the Achievement Gap

The Transformative Power of the Arts in Closing the Achievement Gap

This resource focuses on the transformative power of the visual and performing arts to spark and maintain student engagement and academic achievement, and promote 21st century success in and out of school. This transformative power is most striking in the lives of youth who have been marginalized in society because of poverty, crime, immigrant status, special education placement, limited English skills, and racial discrimination, and in schools by traditional curriculum and instructional practices, narrowly focused standardized assessments, and institutional biases.
