Schools, Communities, and the Arts: A Research Compendium - The effects of arts education are divided into several broad categories in this collection of studies. Sections include: 1) Broad-based Studies -- evaluating the general effects of arts in education programs; 2) Targeted -- examining results, often with a particular arts discipline (i.e., dance, theater, music) in specific populations of students; 3) Compilations; 4) Attitudes and Public Opinion -- examining student, teacher, parent and community perceptions of the effects of arts in education; and 5) Status Studies -- reporting the prevalence of arts education programs and their perceived value in local economies. (Nancy Welch, with Andrea Greene, et al. and Morrison Institute for Public Policy, Arizona State University, on behalf of the National Endowment for the Arts, June 1995)....
