      The issue of poor parent turnout at school functions is not just one
      for the art class, but one for the entire school.

      My principal passed around an article (sorry I don't remember the
      cite) about schools that had changed the structure of parent-teacher
      conferences to be parent-student-teacher conferences. This, along
      with other cultural changes at the schools, increased family
      involvement in all activities.

      Of course, this is a big change that the entire school has to invest
      in, not just the art teachers.
