Easy answer for this one. Most art teacher K-12 are not "working
artists" ... little time for that (except summers) given the average
teaching schedule. There are, of course, many excpetions to this.

University people are another story. In art ed some folks can find a
way to write, present and make work. In studio it's your job to make
work: you teach what you do.
