Resource: The Arts in Schools – a briefing paper published by Cultural Learning Alliance

A new briefing paper from the Cultural Learning Alliance and Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) sets out why participating in the arts in school matters. You can download the paper here.

It captures research that shows that children with an arts deficit are disadvantaged educationally and economically, while their more fortunate peers are more resilient, healthier, do better in school, are more likely to go on to higher education, to get a job and to keep it. The paper talks about the educational, social, personal and economic value of an arts rich education.
