I've just been reading from a book called Cultural Pedagogy: =
Art/Education/Politics (1992). Has anyone else read it? One of the =
issues that the author, David Trend, discusses is community. On page =
90, Trend begins to discuss schools and teachers. What I think is =
relevant to the topic of "inner city classroom challenges" is his =
example of a teachers' coalition established in New York City in 1985. =
Some of you may know the coalition, it's called Artists/Teachers =
Concerned. Their mandate is "to explore the relationship of art and =
community through education." According to Trend, this group is =
currently encouraging the establishment of chapters in other local =
communities (who knows? maybe they could help establish groups in other =
states). Trend offers a few case studies of Intermediate/Jr. High/High =
School that give examples of some early projects initiated by =
Artists/Teachers Concerned. From what he describes, the collaborative =
aspect of the projects is well received by the students. =20

I look forward to your responses.
