Master of Arts (M.A.)
The economic state of the California public school system has significantly declined throughout the past decade. Specifically, government funds for art education in schools have been cut. This paper will support the argument for art education in public schools by discussing the history of arts in California and the correlation between visual arts and student achievement. Evidence to support this argument will include how critical the aesthetic and cultural development skills imbedded in art are for our future society to study and appreciate. This paper will present methodology for alternative actions to improvement and change the art education in California Public Schools.
