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

Schools serving large proportions of economically disadvantaged students can build creative and effective atmospheres for learning through strong arts education that engages students and builds relationships between teachers, students, and communities, a study suggests.

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.
