I wrote this message a couple of days ago. So far I have heard from a
few people. (Thank you!) I would like to hear a few more
responses. Give me some help here. I would like to present a clear
view of the situation. I want to prepare a explanation to the
university as to why 5 weeks in an art classroom setting does or does
not properly prepare someone to become an art educator.
