If there’s no funding for arts education, then kids that thrive in the arts lose one of their top motivators to attend school. Many districts with low engagement in the arts see higher levels of truancy. There are connections between the arts and higher grades and higher rates of attendance among students. It’s not just about creating the next great artists; it’s also about using the arts to transform students.
