The public has until the end of this month to contribute to a final review of the pre-K-12 arts education standards—covering dance, media arts, music, theater, and visual arts—proposed by the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards.

Drafts of the voluntary national standards were developed by a handful of arts-focused groups and educators and are, according to a press release, "intended to affirm the place of arts education in a balanced core curriculum ... and help ensure that all students are college- and career-ready."

The new draft standards emphasize four artistic processes in each arts discipline: creating, performing, responding, and connecting. The final standards are expected to be issued in June.
