Research Abstract
The Complete Curriculum: Ensuring a place for the arts and foreign languages in America's schools - Summary Recommendations
In 2003, the board of directors for the National Association of State Boards of Education charged the Study Group on the Lost Curriculum with examining the current status of curriculum in our nations schools, particularly as regards the arts and foreign languages. After a year of intense study, the group drew several important conclusions about the status of these subjects, as well as some key recommendations for state policymakers. First, the Study Group concluded that there is a substantial body of research that highlights the benefits of including the arts and foreign languages in the curriculum. Second, while the Study Group on the Lost Curriculum found that the arts and foreign languages are not necessarily lost,ン these subject areas have often been marginalized, and areincreasingly at risk of being lost as part of the core curriculum.
