More information about the Arts Education Partnership's report “Third Space: When Learning Matters” is scheduled to be online this week.

Produced by the Washington-based Arts Education Partnership—a coalition of arts, education, business, philanthropic, and government groups that promotes arts education—the study outlines the findings of a team of researchers who examined 10 such schools with strong arts education programs. The schools represent both urban and rural communities across the country, including four elementary, two K-8, two middle, and two high schools.
