Issues at the forefront of discussions in my area are.....

Inclusion ,special ed , S.E.D., challenged children being placed in the regular ed classroom. The challenge is how to meet the needs of all the students in the class.

Holidays... what to include in the classroom and what to leave out.
how much to cover of certain cultures while not excluding others.

Arts advocacy... how to keep your position , what are ways to let the public and the parents see how essential the arts are to a child's development.

State wide testing( including the arts), who decides the benchmarks, and what happens if they are not met.

Budgets, the ever shrinking funding for art supplies.

Hope this is food for thought, Chris
