Personally, I enjoy the reserach by Wanda T. May. She has several good
articles in Studies in Art Education. "Teachers, Teaching & the Workplace:
Omissions in Curriculum Reform" 1989 vol30 no3 and "The Tie that Binds:
Reconstructing Ourselves in Institutional Contexts" 1994 vol35 no3
My favorite quote is: Elementary art teachers are faced with "doing battle
with the ghost of FUN".
