This is rediculous! California doesn't have elementary art teachers and now
this. Its a wonder your students accomplish anything in California.

I believe you've read the writing on the wall. One can only hope that when
students grades and test scores begin plummeting, that someone will do
something about this rediculous law.

my own state has yet to institute such an "upstanding" law.
