Does anyone out there have any information supporting an Art Education
specialist at the kindergarten level?
The School committee is questioning whether we need an Art teacher for
kindergarten in addition to the art the regular teacher teaches in the
classroom. I'd like to take some ammo to the school committee meeting.
