After she took fifth graders on a field trip to an art museum last April, an award-winning art teacher in Frisco, Texas was reprimanded and later suspended. One parent complained that children had seen nude art.
The superintendent says the teacher’s contract will not be renewed at the end of the year; she’s been denied a transfer to another school in the district. Despite years of superior ratings before the field trip, administrators say her teaching performance is the reason she’s been suspended with pay one month into the school year.
EdWonk wonders why principals aren’t held accountable for “artless, spineless and clueless” decisions.
