Abstract

This study explores the presence and impact of nonprofit arts and culture programs in partnership with Arizona’s public schools. Arts and culture offerings are limited by many facets of the educational system, including the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), as evidenced by researchers and participants’ responses in this study. The author argues that arts and culture should not be permitted to disappear from schools. Community leaders and policymakers should continue to invest in the arts and culture educational programs offered by nonprofit organizations and, with public support, should enact sound public and educational policies to support arts and culture in communities and schools.
