The National endowment of the Arts...

"The arts not only have an academic impact on youth, but also a positive correlation to achievement."  The report concludes:  "Socially and economically disadvantaged children who have high levels of arts engagement and arts learning show more positive outcomes in a variety of areas than their low-arts engaged peers...These outcomes extend to school grades, honor society membership, test scores, high school graduation, college enrollment & achievement, volunteering, and engagement in school or local politics."
