The No Child Left Behind act states that the arts are a core subject. In my
district, the arts are not under the gun, but they have cut back and combined
staffing to have more people traveling than before. The kids are getting the
same time, just some teachers are having to do a little more traveling around.
Mostly instrumental folk. But now, we have 2 art teachers who are in 2
different schools. Before it was just me. They don't want to pay full-time
benefits to part-time teachers.
