The National Association for Music Education (NAfME), in collaboration with the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA), the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO), and the National Art Education Association (NAEA), conducts an informal annual survey to collect data about the use of federal funds to support music and the arts (dance, theatre, and visual arts). Responses for the 2022–23 school year were received from 48 states and the Department of Defense Education Activity between October 2 and October 27, 2023. The majority of the 388 individuals who filled out the survey were classroom teachers and district arts supervisors.
