I do so relate to what you've been saying. It seems that all the teachers in
my school agree that the kids are, in general, less interested in working
hard this year. Maybe there is a reason for this It's frustrating. It takes
a lot of diligence and persistence to keep them on target. There is so much
talent out there and when you get them to be productive, it's wonderful. Can
you imagine that we will have Regents in the studio foundation art course
before long in NY state? We're trying to follow the guidelines suggested by
NY state already so we'll be ready. Oy vay!!!!!!!
