I'm not familiar with the article you refer to. I think it might be interesting to read. Do you have a link to the article or a copy you can scan and attach?
Sorry to hear your program is on the block. I hope it survives the cut. Have you contacted the PTO, the local art associations and other arts friendly people and organizations? Their presence at such a meeting may help.
Good luck. Presently I'm counting my blessings.

Subject: feminist research in Art Ed
Just finished the article, Feminist Research: Themes, Issues, and Applications in Art Education by Collins and Sandell. My take on all of this that in light of everything that has happened in the past months with the bombings and budget cuts, that we need to be strong and stand united in the field of Art Education. We can't afford to use our energy to create/fouce on subdivisions within the field. My program comes up this Tuesday night at the school board meeting on the 2nd list of cuts. I don't think that it will matter that much what my gender is when it comes to cutting the art program out of my school system.
Any views on the subject will be welcomed....
