• Challenge: Chicago lacks
    coordinated access to the
    arts and training of arts
    educators
    Although many outstanding arts education
    organizations and artists work in Chicago,
    little coordinated efforts exist between
    these entities. There is also a lack of a
    focused strategy to ensure broad and
    sustainable access to arts education for
    all children. The need for art to be a
    vital part of learning for all Chicago Public
    School students in every school exists, as
    does the need for the systemic professional
    development of teaching artists.
    response: Creating collaborative delivery of
    arts learning in Chicago Public Schools
