have a world religion class. It does seem strange that they (the board) debates
and changes in the science
curriculum, written by science teachers. Maybe we should be glad they stayed
there and are not looking
to see what the art teachers wrote for standards. I'm glad to have the freedom
to select what I teach and
how. It's not because they approve or respect the sound professional judgment of
seasoned teachers,
It's because they don't care. We lobbied to get Art to be part of the state
standards, perhaps later on
we will wish we had never wrote letters.
