Arts Education and Its Impact on our Youth It is a proven fact that students who have access to arts in school tend to be more successful, they achieve better grades, tend to be more well-adjusted and have less behavioral issues. Reports have shown specifically, low-income students who had artsrich experiences in high school were ten percent more likely to complete, for example, a high school calculus course than similar students who had less exposure to the arts. Additionally, economically-disadvantaged students who had exposure to the arts were more likely to have planned to earn a bachelor’s degree (74 percent) than were economically-disadvantaged students with little or no access to the arts (43 percent). The National Education Association believes the arts play an important role in providing students with a well-rounded education. With all the data on the successful impact arts education provide for our youth why has there been such significant cuts to arts programs in the public schools. Why has more funding been allocated to arts education in juvenile facilities rather than allocating those funds to students in traditional programs. Is it possible that more funding for arts programs within our public schools lead to more successful students and positively reduce the drop rate?
