Summary

Seeking to describe the current conditions of U.S. arts education, this document contains information collected and compiled from state education agencies. In 1984, the National Executive Board of Music Educators National Conference (MENC) adopted three goals which stated that by 1990: (1) every student in grades K-12 would have access to music education in school; (2) high schools would require at least one Carnegie unit of arts credit for graduation; and (3) colleges and universities would require at least one Carnegie unit of arts credit for admission. This project investigated progress toward meeting these goals through the examination of data collected from each state for MENC by the National Council of State Supervisors of Music. A 16-item questionnaire was sent to state supervisors of music or other contact persons in each state concerning: (1) state requirements; (2) the number of arts specialists in elementary and secondary schools; and (3) state goals and objectives on arts curriculum guidelines. Tables indicate the status of the MENC goals and the number of arts teachers and specialists by state. All states were able to supply state regulations information, but few were able to provide arts enrollment data. Difficulties were encountered in arts teacher counts, because many, such as drama and dance teachers, are counted as English and physical education instructors. The collected data indicates that MENC is achieving the first goal, progress is being made on the second, and additional work needs to be done to accomplish the third goal. (JHP)
