The article focuses on the challenge facing U.S. school districts in 2006 with regard to making the arts an integral part of education. School districts are learning the complexity of collaboration as they struggle to find the space, the time and the money to keep arts alive in their schools. The arts' presence in the curriculum is becoming even more tenuous with the focus of the No Child Left Behind policy on math and reading, and the belief of business leaders that science and technology are the keys to keeping the nation competitive. INSET: Spotlight on solutions.
