Hi Nancy!


I am sure that we both share in the hope that U.S. Art Education can breathe new life in to the general public school curriculums for 2000. My concerns lie with the knotty problem of getting art into core curriculums. Pete Wilson's state address was all on educational reform (10M for computer education, and teacher mandates), and not a single mention of "art" in the plan. Here we are in the Getty backyard, with a new "art curriculum guideline" ready to be published, and still no concerted effort for the support of the arts!

The Artsednet page represents only a fraction of art educators on board. There are still many classroom teachers in primary and secondary positions, and proferssors of art who question Getty motives, and Eisner's DBAE, in general. I'm searching for a compromise as I am sure we all are.

Cordially, Bob

P.S. Proposal: 3 Artsednet Sections, i.e. ELEMENTARY, SECONDARY, and COLLEGE LEVEL INTERESTS?
