The No Child Left Behind Act (200 1) has profoundly affected a student's overall education. This study explores the effects of the No Child Left Behind Act on the Visual and Performing Arts Programs at one high school through various perspectives. Findings reveal arts teachers experience frustration, feel undervalued, fear obsolescence, and perceive their teaching practices have been altered. Counselors and administrators believe their primary focus must be directed toward tested subjects with much of their efforts now becoming compliance driven.
These findings suggest the arts are in danger of being removed from the educational public school system, an unfortunate consequence for the development of future artists. Therefore, it is recommended ways be found to focus on the importance of the arts and provide students more opportunities to enroll in visual and performing arts courses and experiences so that they have the opportunity to become well-rounded and fully educated citizens.
