I have just returned from a very pleasant vacation and have been trying to
catch up on my listserve postings. I am mystified and alarmed at the
somewhat hostile and argumentative environment that seems to have claimed
this site. I am finding myself sickened by the degree of unprofessionalism
and disregard to feeling and am seriously debating whether to stop my
postings from coming. When I joined this listserve I was looking for a place
in which to share ideas, experiences and facilitate of support for both my
own position and the position of every art educator. I am seriously
disjointed in the barrage of attacks that have been playing out on this
public forum. Some of it has turned into, with lack of a better
phrasing..pissing contest. We are supposed to be discussing art,
philosophies of teaching and general issues....not jumping at each other. We
teach children to think before they speak..perhaps we should be doing the
same.

Best regards,
Stephanie
