Fact of the Week #97: Provision of arts education is out of sync with student demand : A multi-year trend of decreases in K-12 arts education finally rebounded in 2013. Previously, even with downward trends in the number of high school arts and music classes taken by college-bound seniors, college-level demand in this area continues to increase. The number of college arts degrees rose steadily from 75,000 to 139,000 between 1997-2013. Reasons for this include an increase in design degrees along with the appeal to college students of double majors combining arts with humanities, social sciences, and physical science ( or other STEM disciplines). artsindexusa.org
