No Child Left Behind: A Study of Its Impact on Art Education (September 2010)
The forthcoming re-authorization of the ESEA has sparked many conversations about the skills students need for college- and career-readiness, including skills identified by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (e.g. learning and innovation; information, media and technology; life and career skills). These conversations raise the question of how the education system will foster college- and career-readiness, and for purposes of this study, how the next iteration of ESEA will affect visual art and other core subject educators’ ability to teach these skills, and consequently, students’ opportunities to learn them. (Note: This study refers only to visual art education and educators.)
