Educators in 22 Pennsylvania districts strongly support arts education, saying most of their students have displayed artwork or performed for the community, but fewer than half those educators are working with other teachers to integrate art into their lesson plans, according to a survey from a community arts council. Teachers such as Scott Cole, whose fifth-graders create comic books in his class, say adding art into lesson plans is difficult under the constant pressure of state tests and standards.
