In response to laments about being refered to as "specials" - I certainly see
your point; however, can't we take a small amount of comfort in the fact that
our subject area is considered to require a specifically trained person to
teach it? (If this wasn't the generally accepted opinion, few of us would
have jobs; the classroom teachers would just teach it along with all those
"academic" subjects and the kids would be back to ditto Leprechauns and
traced-hand turkeys!) (of course, with the exception of those classroom
teachers who really do use Art in their teaching)
Just a thought! :-)
