<hahahaha....I actually had a parent tell me that it was important to display
artwork be generally the students who are good in art are usually not very
good at other things, academically speaking.....<belly laugh!!!!!!!>
Stupidity abounds!!!!!!!
Really?
Why would you laugh at such statement. Education is the way we deal with such
comments. Perhaps the parent meant that often students that are not strong
academically can find a place to shine in the arts. Many students are able to
make connections in the art room and then find that it can open doors to many
for them, educationally speaking. Parents are no different.
