the arts = better school performance

A new study has found a link between elective arts courses in music, dance, visual art and drama, and better grades in middle school. Students who are exposed to the arts early-on, also tended to do better earlier in elementary school and had stronger cognitive language and social skills at age 4. The benefits of the arts is not a new subject of discussion, but as arts programs are getting cut in schools, it is important to back these claims with strong data. "Although it is widely thought that the arts have all kinds of positive benefits for kids, the research on which that is based has been fairly weak in the past," says professor Adam Winsler, George Mason University Arts Research Center. medical xpress
