I read with interest many of the replies to the "requests" by administration
for special projects. Although I agree that we are the experts of our
discipline, is it wise to snub the hand that ultimately feeds you?

I deal with similar requests and greet them as a challenge and new source
for lesson options and it's usually not very hard to comply with anyway. The
result of this cooperative approach often gives me perks: upgraded computer
equipment, extra budget money as it becomes available and naturally a good
working relationship with my administration.

If we boast that art is about everything and important to a child's
learning, then complain when the idea is utilized by those who bought it,
aren't chipping away at our own credibility?

I don't want to antagonize anyone but it's important to remember that you
are part of a system, not an island.
