          As we all know, quality arts
        instruction is rarely delivered by non-art specialists. Administrators
        wouldn't ask an illiterate to teach language arts, why would they ask a
        visual illiterate to teach art?
        Later in the month I will be delivering a talk in Flagstaff about this very
        subject. In the audience will be campus principals as well as city, county,
        and state superintendents of schools. I hope to ruffle a few feathers and
        then offer some solutions in the form of some of my pre-service students who
        will be in the audience.

        believe the arts are listed as a "core subject" in the NCLB act.The problem
        is that, with the big push for testing in the so-called academic subjects,
        many administrators choose to overlook this. Linda
