Hi Christine-interesting that you should bring this up. Just yesterday I
was talking with another hs art teacher about this. I teach in a
predominantly white rural school in the county (NC) and she teaches in a
predominantly black hs in the city-we both have a preponderance of males
in all of our classes. I'll be anxious to get feedback from others on
this. Have a great weekend. Linda in NC
