Administration Advocacy WMDs - the Why, the Mission, the Data

  • thumbnail for Jeremy Earnhart
  • This interactive session will include presentations successful in changing central & campus administration conversations from reduction, to music program expansion, including local application of music cuts and reverse-economics (Benham, 2011). Embedded will be related processes leading to a successful $663,100,000 bond package including significant fine arts improvements. A changing educational landscape has created the need for music advocacy to be reframed for the current climate of high-stakes accountability––a systems approach to traditional enrichment.
