Wow Harold....you also hit something on the head. Talk about things that
can take away from your kids and program....how about having to coach
sports or be an advisor because you may be the new kid on the block? The
creation of an arts club could be more productive.

I know an art teacher that was hired primarily to coach wrestling and help
with football. The many times I substitute taught at this particular
school...I never saw the art teacher walking around helping students. This
person was glued to their podium going over play books, after school
practice notes, etc...constantly. My son dates a girl in this high school
whom highlighted that very same thing. It was obvious the school had
placed upon this person the weight of the importance and priority to the
community that sports had become.
