A Letter to my School District

Unlock Your Child’s Ability to Achieve.

It’s a proven fact: arts education brings out BIG things in Texas students. Art Can improve student outcomes, build a 21st-century workforce, and power the Texas economy. 

Access to arts education delivers measurable results for Texas students. Students highly engaged in the arts are: 

  • Up to 112% more likely to earn an exceptional score on standardized tests. 
  • Up to 42% more likely to attend a four-year college or university.
  • Prepared for the 21st-century workforce. 

Access to arts education is far from equitable in Texas schools.  

  • 61% of elementary arts teachers are not fine arts certified. 

Of the 2.4 million children enrolled in elementary grades, only: 

  • 1.6 million children have a music-certified teacher. 
  • 1.1 million children have a visual arts-certified teacher. 
  • 35 thousand have a theatre-certified teacher. 

Art can ensure a bright future for our state. Get involved and ensure every child has access to the arts. 
By filling out the form to the right, in less than a minute you can let your local superintendent know Texas children need access to arts education and stand up to ensure every child has access to a well-rounded education.
