SRI study finds that the University of California, Irvine Writing Project’s Pathway to Academic Success project leads to improved students’ academic writing through professional development for secondary English language arts and advanced English language development teachers.
This study examines arts education access for students served by California’s district community day schools, county community schools, and juvenile court schools; which we collectively refer to as court and community schools (CCS).
Our goal was to assess schools’ arts programs relative to state goals, examine the systems of support for these programs, and identify ways in which state and local policymakers might improve conditions for young people to experience arts education in schools.
We found that, while much remained the same in 2020 as in 2006, some aspects of arts education in California’s K–12 schools had improved.
This study describes the COE role in arts education, examines how COE activities have shifted in response to California’s Local Control Funding Formula, and examines how these changes may affect access, participation, quality, and equity in arts education in K-12 schools.
