Music and Arts Education in NYC Schools

Each year, the New York City Department of Education (DOE) releases official reports and accompanying data sets that describe and quantify the state of arts education in NYC public schools, a system of about 1,800 schools that serve 1.1 million students.

However, because these reports often overlook how access to music and arts education is inequitably distributed, ETM conducts analyses of the available raw data.

This report includes findings from our analyses and includes indicators of the “musical health” of ETM partner schools for comparative purposes, where available. All schools included in this report are NYC public schools.
