Marcia,

You wrote: "Is there some firm research dealing with the positive
benefits of art and tech ed related to the other academic areas??"

A publication that would probably be helpful is, Eloquent Evidence:
Arts at the Core of Learning. It is a listing of studies compiled by the
President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities and funded by the
General Electric Fund. One quote:

"For example, students of the arts continue to outperform
their non-arts peers on the Scholastic Assessment Test,
according to The College Entrance Examination Board. In 1995,
SAT scores for students who studied the arts more than four
years were 59 points higher on the verbal and 44 points higher
on the math portion than students with no coursework or
experience in the arts.
The College Board, Profile of SAT and Achievement Test Takers,
1995

Other information included in this 12 page publication addresses how
achievement in the arts facilitates achievement in other subject areas,
how the arts prepare students for a career, especially with regards to
employers looking for innovative, creative workers, as well as preparing
students for a job in the arts, how the arts effect "quality of life",
how the arts can help at-risk students, etc. Copies of this booklet may
be obtained from the,

National Assembly of State Arts Agencies
1010 Vermont Avenue NW, Suite 920
Washington, DC 20005

Hope this helps.
