*Article: ART is the heART in Education - Arts & Culture Seen: "It is proven that visits to performances are effective! A recent study in Brookings by Jay Greene Distinguished Professor of Education Reform – University of Arkansas (1) reports “that students who received multiple [arts] field trips experienced significantly greater gains on their standardized test scores after the first year than did the control students. If we combine math and ELA tests, we see a gain of 12.4 percent of a standard deviation at p < 0.01, which translates into roughly 87 additional days of learning. Breaking out the results shows gains of similar magnitude for both math and ELA, but the math result is only significant at p < .10 while the ELA result is statistically significant on its own.” WOW! And the results in this study come from a study of students receiving multiple field trips to the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta; attending events at the High Museum, Alliance Theater, and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra!"
