I absolutely agree! Not paying attention to the quality of student writing
displayed only adds to the stereotype that artists can't write well and
therefore in our culture are not very "smart". When asking the English
teacher for help in this area, you might also offer to help him or her
improve the quality of the artwork done in the English class (like in
illustrating stories, etc.) by providing some guidelines, a rubric, examples
of quality work, materials, etc.
