School-stakeholder partnership is an effective approach in curriculum development and implementation as it promotes children’s academic success. Thus, this study examined the extent to which stakeholders participated in the promotion of the arts in two phases of Basic Education. The study investigated school-stakeholder partnership schemes that schools could adopt to nurture the arts status. Qualitative case study was embraced whereby eight teachers, two education officers (EOs), six arts experts and six entrepreneurs were interviewed. The study further examined the education policies to diagnose its status in promoting school-stakeholder partnership programmes. The study revealed that school-stakeholder partnership scheme is essential to effective schooling. The findings also indicated limited practice in school-stakeholder partnerships. As a result, the status of the subjects remains low as it is not effectively implemented due to teachers’ limited skills in the arts. The study recommends intensifying the levels of stakeholders’ participation in children’s academic work to facilitate improvements in arts education.
