Concluding Remarks: Policy Implications for Postsecondary Arts Education by Douglas Dempster

Abstract

Insightful, rigorous social scientific research on the effectiveness of postsecondary education in the arts provides a more reliable guide and corrective to arts colleges than the accreditation process enforced by the National Office of Arts Accreditation, which protects and privileges arts disciplines, and faculties, over the interests of students. The postsecondary arts education industry should become more data driven and less tradition-bound.
