Wonderful words of wisdom. I have actually heard art teachers verbalize how
they deliberately play the part of the school buffoon or idiot. Somehow they
thought it helped. And yes it is sad how little the other teachers know about
what we teach. But just think.IFthey had art at all they probably had it with
a teacher or teachers who thought that if they taught the design principles
they would take the fun out of it. Or were too busy being the school dingbat
to be effective. So why should they respect anything which was represented as
having no content, was not possible to test, and could be administered by an
obvious clown.
