Getty should rethink their focus. Their articles hinted at wanting art in
the normal curriculum. In my state they have realized that grades 4 - 8
subjects should be taught by specialists. When I realized how uneducated
regular classsroom teachers are in the subject of art, I started wondering
about their expertise in other subjects. Allowing regualr teachers to teach
art will amount to pumpkins and witches. There will be an exception on
occasion. If the Getty thinks otherwise they are living on planet X. Our
state will allow teachers to be licensed in only two subject fields for
their initial license. Art, music and phys. ed/ health will maintain their
k - 12 status as specialists, from what I understand. The pre k - grades 3
will still instruct all subjects.California does not always seem to make
wise education choices from my observation from National News. This seems to
be another indication of this. Too bad Getty will not remain a leader in
this field and has been influenced by it inferior surroundings. Art
educators will be looking for another leader.
