As part of the transition to higher learning standards for students, states are also rethinking their systems of preparation, support, and evaluation for educators and school leaders. AEP partner organizations are working to ensure that all levels of the educator workforce are ready and able to engage the arts as a core academic subject, as a key instructional resource across all disciplines, and as a strategy for school turnaround. For this Agenda the definition of “educator workforce” includes certified arts specialists, teachers of subjects other than the arts, school leaders, and community-based arts educators.
