I'm currently working toward an MA in art education at The University of =
the Arts in Philadelphia. The art education just got a large grant =
through PA's 'Link to Learn' program to train teachers how to use =
technology and distance learning. We have been working with the =
Philadelphia Museum of Art's distance learning programs, and have used =
some of the grant money to purchase teleconferencing equipment for =
several Philly schools. Two new faculty were hired this year to =

an all-consuming goal (grants, grants, grants!) for our department =

curriculum in art are under much less focus. There are no guarantees =
for any of us that our schools will have or be able to afford this =
