Arts are essential.
Why is Any Given Child important?
Arts are an essential element of a complete education, helping students...
Stay in School = Succeed in School
Succeed in Work = Succeed in Life
Students engaged in the arts are:
4x more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.
4x more likely to participate in a math or science fair.
3x more likely to win an award for school attendance.
Low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are more than twice as likely to graduate from college as their peers with no arts education.
