What a great idea for NAEA to publish a proposed suggested dollar amount
per student. We have been fortunate. In the last few years, we have had a
four year initiative that has been used for replacing aging equipment,
such as kilns, electric tools as well as provided software for computer
art classes, a new etching press. For our part we try to monitor supplies,
take inventory, save supermarket receipts for additional equipment, such
as a digital camera. Of course, some districts don't have the funds
available, but if they do and do not spend on the arts, shame on them.
