Re: "school appropriate" shades of gray


Date: Tue Jul 16 2002 - 15:59:57 PDT

My feeling about guns/violence/inappropriate content is not a statement about
what is appropriate in a statement about what I feel is appropriate
content for student work. I tell my students who want to include this that
or the other this very thing. There are very powerful works that have all of
these subjects as the focus. My feeling is that we are in school, (I teach
ele.) and these things are not appropriate matters for school art. We can
have a conversation about them. May seem a little two faced.....but there
you go!
