Teresa, you might want to talk with the individual teacher first. We go
through this new problem periodically, especially when we get new teachers.
Several years ago I had a principal who mandated that any child who was
not performing up to standards on his/her other subjects would be tutored
during art, music, pe and media classes. What a message to send about the
importance of those subjects in his mind. That didn't last long because
parents got into the issue. I expressed my opinion up front, but it didn't
make any difference. I try to keep a good working relationship with all
classroom teachers and most will work with you. I have two that I am going
to have to talk with at present. Good luck. Ann
