I agree with you 100%. Don't get me wrong...there are alot of wonderful
art teachers (like the ones on this list) that really care about the
arts and teaching them to their students. But I know one teacher that
spends an entire month on the AAA poster contest....because they give
money to the student, teacher and school. I too, feel that teachers
should be held accountable. And it will give us art teachers the
respect that we are always complaining about in here.
