After reading the various statements about the types of displays, the volume
of student work displayed....I am not sure what is the intent of the display
for the elementary student. There seems to be a focus on self-esteem and
"being out there in the community", etc. Maybe I am mistaken, but shouldn't
we as educators
putting focus on the art work "being the community" which reflectthe values of
the community. It sounds like the school isn't a valid part of the entire
community, thus, the art work isn't either?
