I just read an 8 page brochure put out by Association for Supervision and
Curriculum Development - ASCD. It was GREAT and was called ARTS
education:A cornerstone of Basic Education, Spring 1998. It can be
ordered. The stock number is 198205, email---update.
This is an organization for admin. and curr. dev. It's nice to come from
another angle rather than the arts people.
