The Arts Transform the Teaching and Learning Environment

Action Agenda Priority Area III:

States are employing a wide array of innovative approaches to personalize students’ learning experiences and transform the learning environment. AEP partner organizations are working to explore and expand arts-centered and arts-based solutions and strategies for using time, resources, and technology in new and innovative ways to ensure the learning environment supports student success for all children and young people.

Released in March 2015, The Arts Leading the Way to Student Success: A 2020 Action Agenda for Advancing the Arts in Education (Text Only) sets forth an ambitious plan for achieving the Action Agenda’s five-year aspirational goal: By the year 2020 every young person in America, at every grade level, from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, will have equitable access to high quality arts learning opportunities, both during the school day and in out-of-school time.
