The Chicago Publics Schools has an arts teacher in almost all of its schools but still doesn’t provide equal access to all students, according to report by a school arts advocacy organization.
Ingenuity Inc. identified a part-time or full-time arts teacher in about 94 percent of CPS-run schools during the 2012-13 school year. The lion’s share of quality arts education is on the city’s North and Northwest sides.
