In 2004, ArtsWA started the Arts Education Research Initiative (AERI). We gathered and shared data about arts education in K-12 schools over several years. Our research and findings aid educators, artists, parents, and policy makers to support positive change in our schools.
K-12 Arts Education: Every Student, Every School, Every Year | 2009 report based on a survey of K-12 principals in the 2008-2009 school year.
Principals from 37 of 39 Washington counties responded. Researchers visited select schools to learn more about successes and challenges. The report includes other state and national research. It also includes quality-markers and suggestions for taking action.
