Go to the classroom and pull the students out to finish their art work!

Subject: Using art as discipline.

Ok, all you wise art colleagues, I am asking for your sage advice. What is
your opinion regarding classrom teachers who remove kids from art class for
either behavior issues or to finish other classroom work? It's not permitted
at my school, but teachers still do it. I travel to the classrooms and find
it very difficult to deal with staff who do this. I feel very strongly that
this should not happen, but wish to keep a peaceful work environment, too.
How do you handle this? judy ---
