The question I am working on centers on just where the leaders of tomorrow
are going to come from. I am looking for models of leadership training
programs for arts educators that are being used today. Models that are
aimed at developing a strong leadership cadre of elementary and secondary
teachers for disciplined based arts organizations in each state and
locality. I am looking for models that will focus on engaging leaders in
all of the arts disciplines.
In Iowa several of us are looking to begin an acadamy for the development
of leadership skills for all arts educators whereby they can learn what is
needed to become an effective leader at the local and state level. We feel
that all of the organiztions that support arts education will be strengthened.
I would appreciate knowing how to get in touch of those people who have
worked with business and industry in an attempt to set up leadership programs.
Thank you in advance for your thoughts and help.
