dc.description.abstractThe current report reviews the literature on school-based performing arts and its impact on students’ academic and social lives. As a result of our nation’s current economic downturn, many school districts are facing difficult decisions of which school-based programs to continue or cut. The benefits and challenges of keeping school-based performing arts programs are explored.

Additionally, research has found that school-based performing arts have the greatest impact on students from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

Finally, this report outlines several suggestions for future research.en
