To prepare this analysis, Quadrant Research was provided with the 2012/2013 Highly Qualified Teacher data for the four arts disciplines (dance, music, theatre and visual arts). In addition, Quadrant had access to the 2008/2009 HQT data for music and visual arts to allow for comparative analysis between the two periods (2009 vs. 2013). For the purposes of this report, for the 2012/2013 school year there were:

  • 1,844 Total Public Schools with 1,048,503 students
  • 1,339 District Schools with 902,064 students
