Overview

Self-reported by organization

The inclusion of arts in education will result in; 1) reduction in the drop-out rate (approximately 1 in 4 CA students drop out before grade 12); 2) improve achievement (research shows students exposed to music have improved math abilities); and 3) increase school safety (over 15 million cases of bullying last year in CA). Students exposed to the arts We are launching a grass-roots co-venture with the CA PTA in May 2009 outlining the importance of arts in education to the general public. The Channing-Kullijian Foundation has established scholarships in 14 of the 23 CA State Universities (used for arts students and for teachers in the arts).
