description:

The National Assembly of State Arts Agencies (NASAA) and the AEP commissioned Critical Evidence: How the Arts Benefit Student Achievement in response to the needs of arts professionals and nonprofessionals alike for accurate and concise information that reflects the current state of knowledge about arts learning and student achievement. This new publication serves as an update to Eloquent Evidence: Arts at the Core of Learning, which was published by NASAA, in collaboration with the AEP, the National Endowment for the Arts and the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in October 1995. Ten years after its release, the evidence is even more eloquent, and the need to demonstrate the link between the arts and student achievement has grown more critical.
