    Numbers of Note / The Arts in Schools? Survey says YES! thumbnail
      A survey of American adults found that:
      91% believe the arts are part of a well-rounded K–12 education.
      94% believe it's important for elementary and middle school students to receive education in the arts. (93% say so for high schoolers.)
      72% believe the arts unify communities.
      81% say the arts are "a positive experience in a troubled world."
      Source: "Americans Speak Out About the Arts," 2018. Americans for the Arts.
