Education Commission of the States Releases 50-State Arts Education Comparison

The Education Commission on the States has released its 50-State Comparison, which assesses the capacity of all 50 states and the District of Columbia to aggregate and report on arts education data already housed in statewide education data systems. It focuses on key arts education questions identified in Using State Data Systems to Report Information on Arts Education.

You can use the tool to see how your state measures up in the collected data points compared to other states, as well as see each state profile in detail. 

This 50-State Comparison is one in a suite of tools created by the State Data Infrastructure Project in the Arts — a partnership between the National Endowment for the Arts and Education Commission of the States — to build states’ capacity to extract, analyze and report on data about arts education. The project aims to empower policymakers, communities and families with the information they need to ensure that every American student has the opportunity to excel in and through the arts.
