Chad, I am the Elementary Chair for the Art Educators of New Jersey.
At the recent State conference I chaired the Caucus for Elementary
Concerns.. ..The dominant concerns seem to be the standards and
inclusion.
Personally, I have welcomed the National Standards because they validate
my belief that we are responsible for much more than production.
I feel that most districts require us to teach our discipline with both
hands tied behind our backs, only pennies in our pockets, and clocks for
hearts and souls. With the standards I have a tool for demanding a full
measure! When I am held accountable I will gladly respond, "Give equal
measure and watch my dust.".
