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.

>Please comment. How does your district plan to use these two new laws.


My sympathies go out to all of you in California. I'm certainly glad that
my own state has yet to institute such an "upstanding" law.
