Dr. Laura Chapman disputes a prior news report from April 18, 2012: "No Obituary Needed for Arts Education, Data Suggest."
"Cutbacks in arts education are not a fiction. In the 2011 MetLife Survey of the American Teacher, 23 percent of teachers reported reductions or eliminations of art or music programs during the past 12 months. These cuts were deeper in schools with enrollments that were more than two-thirds minority students than otherwise, 30 percent vs. 19 percent."
