Reply To: Administration not seeing eye to eye
Two approaches have worked for me.
1. They have hired you to teach and now they are telling you to babysit. Show the NAFME standards and talk about what successful programs bring to schools. If there is a successful program in nearby town use them as an example.
2.Get parents and students to use their voice to support the program you want to build. Get them on board and empower them to contact administration about what they would like in a music program.
