I teach 7th and 8th grade art. My students have art for 9 weeks, 4 times
per week, for only one out of the 2 years they are in the junior high. The
seventh graders that I have now will not have art again unless they elct to
take it in high school. The 8th graders I have did not have it as 7th
graders. You get the picture! This seems like so LITLLE art to me and I am
curious about how often you middle school teachers see your students. We
want to make a recommendation to the school committee to expand the program
and I want to go armed with documentation about what's going on in other
towns and states. If anyone knows the National recommendation, I would be
interested in that too. Thanks! Marian
