Journal of the Month: Arts Education Policy Review

Arts Education Policy Review

The Journal of the month for July/August is Arts Education Policy Review (AEPR). This journal presents discussion of major policy issues in arts education in the United States and throughout the world. Addressing education in music, visual arts, theater, and dance, AEPR presents a variety of views and emphasizes critical analysis. Its goal is to produce the most comprehensive and rigorous exchange of ideas available on arts education policy. Policy examinations from multiple viewpoints are a valuable resource not only for arts educators, but also for administrators, policy analysts, advocacy groups, parents, and audiences—all those involved in the arts and concerned about their role in education.

Volume 114, No. 1 Features:

“Assessment on Our Own Terms”—The authors advocate for those professionally concerned about the arts and arts teaching to reaffirm and rearticulate essential principles of artistic evaluation and, in the present environment, pursue applications of those principles in various forms of evaluation.

“Arts Education Advocacy: The Relative Effects of School-Level Influences on Resources for Arts Education”—Results of a study to investigate advocacy influences that may impact school arts programs using data from the 2009–10 National Center for Education Statistics elementary and secondary school surveys on arts education.

“Seismic Shifts in the Education Landscape: What Do They Mean for Arts Education and Arts Education Policy?”—This report provides an overview of a selected number of contemporary developments in the general field of education and an examination of some policy issues these developments and reports raise for arts educators as they work to shape the future landscape of arts education.
