Center for Learning Through the Arts & Technology

The Center for Learning Through the Arts was developed in response to a national call issued by the federal government and echoed by a broad range of professional organizations. In 1994 the United States Congress passed legislation that included the arts as part of the core curriculum students needed to master in order to achieve high levels of knowledge and performance. To establish priorities for arts education research, the Arts Education Partnership (AEP) convened a task force. This report, funded in 1997 with support from National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. Department of Education, calls for research in all of the areas identified by our Center's mission and scope of inquiry. The report also calls for policy development informed by this research, a second focus of the Center.
