Arts Education Partnership debuts new tool to shed light on state arts policies

The Arts Education Partnership has just debuted ArtScan, a searchable database of the latest state policies supporting education in and through the arts from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

This resource not only includes policy language excerpted directly from each state’s education policies, but also information on state-level surveys of arts education and a set of descriptive education indicators (from the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics’ Digest of Education Statistics: 2012).

ArtScan provides unparalleled access to state policies for the purpose of understanding each state’s guidelines. It is also capable of making comparisons between state policies in the following areas:

  • Arts Education Instructional Requirements
  • High School Requirements for Arts Education
  • Arts Requirements for Educator Licensure
  • Arts in Core Academic Subjects, Assessment, & Accreditation
  • Surveys of Arts Education

In addition, it provides access to summary data from 13 policies for state arts education, as well as access to research and policy briefs, and more.
