Arts in Focus: Los Angeles Countywide Arts Education Survey is the baseline study of the state of arts education in the most populous county in the nation. The students in the districts covered in this survey represent 27% of all students enrolled in public schools K-12 in the state of California and 3.4% of all students enrolled in public schools K-12 in the nation. Clearly this report has significance beyond the borders of the County and is an important contribution to the growing body of arts education research.
