ARTS INEQUALITY IS EDUCATION INEQUALITY

Together, let's advocate for policies that institutionalize the arts in CPS schools and transform the lives of all 350,000 CPS students.

advocacy Wins to date

Since our founding in 2011, Ingenuity has helped advance the following arts policies:

 

  • Chicago Public Schools has elevated to a core subject
  • The District has recommended 120 minutes of dedicated weekly arts instruction in elementary schools
  • High school graduation arts requirements expanded to include theater and dance 
  • The arts appear on the public-facing CPS scorecard for each school along with other academic indicators
  • Arts education is included in the new school principal evaluation

These monumental policy changes are a step in the right direction, but they only mark the beginning of our work.
