New Jersey Arts Education

    New Jersey has become the first state to provide universal access to arts education with nearly 1.1 million students participating. New Jersey governor Phil Murphy said, “I am grateful that my own education included exposure to the arts, and I know that I would not be where I am today without the skills theatre taught me.” According to a 2017 Rutgers-Eagleton Poll, 9 out of 10 residents say that receiving an education in the arts – which includes lessons in dance, music, theater, visual arts, media arts, and other forms of creativity – is “very” or “somewhat” important in the classroom (90 percent), through before or after school programs (93 percent), and through cultural organizations in their community (89 percent).
