Did you know that teaching artists "greatly outnumber licensed school-based arts specialists" in New York City Public Schools?
It's a fact.
If you sign up for Arts Watch, you can get news like that every week.
I followed a link to Broadway World and there was the story:
The New York City Arts in Education Roundtable, an arts education service organization, today released results from two surveys, both attesting to the enormous contribution the city's cultural organizations make to arts teaching and learning in the city's schools.
The Roundtable's annual Impact Survey reveals that in aggregate New York's arts organizations spent more than 15% of their budgets on educational programs and raised tens of millions of dollars in 2007-08 for education programs in New York City public schools.
