Dr. Kathleen Thomas Examines the Constitution of Arts-Rich Schools

1-8-14 - Access to education in visual art, music, theatre, and dance is varied and unequal across public schools in the United States. Yet the extent of this inequality is largely undocumented.

Dr. Kathleen Thomas, associate professor of economics at MSU, offers recommendations to educators and policyholders for finding the constitution of an arts-rich school, as well as ways to measure its accessibility.

The study is featured on the Policy Analysis for California Education's (PACE) website.
