NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The first-ever forum on arts education in Oklahoma has been scheduled later this month in Norman.

Organized by the Oklahoma Arts Council, the Oct. 21 event at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art is designed to give participants a glance of the current situation of arts education programs throughout the state.

The forum will also launch an effort to prioritize arts education as a way of improving education in Oklahoma.

Organizers say that research consistently demonstrates that arts education improves overall academic outcomes for students.

About 140 people are expected to attend. Special guests will include education and arts leaders from around Oklahoma.
