More On Education

Sometimes you just have to wonder how America keeps its status as the sole superpower in the world.
An award-winning Texas art teacher has not had her contract renewed after taking her fifth-grade students on a school-approved field trip to the Dallas Museum of Art.
The Fisher Elementary School art teacher came under fire last April when she took 89 fifth-graders on a field trip to the Dallas Museum of Art. Parents raised concerns over the field trip after their children reported seeing a nude sculpture at the art museum.
It seems the good people of Dubyaland weren't aware that they can't trust even Texas museums to protect their children from art ... er ... smut.
The parents had signed permission slips allowing their children to take part in the field trip.
So someone must be at fault ... who else but the teacher?
What does this have to do with our status as a superpower? How long can we keep that with a citizenry made up of morons?
I'd be concerned about insulting them, but if any of them stumble across this page, they'll have their eyes screwed tight shut.

Whoa, Catshark, I hadn't seen this post before, although I had seen some stories back last year on it. What surprises me the most is that there are whole groups of people that have never seen The Simpsons episode regarding just this very statue. Didn't they learn anything from Marge?
I don't know what statue was the "offending" one ... what I saw on this story wasn't specific. My illustrations are often ironic ... sometimes visual puns ... and, not a few times, completely unrelated.

And, no, they didn't learn from Marge because these people are stupider than cartoon characters.
omg, Some poor little girl lost her virtue cuz she saw David's balls.
I guess he doesn't want to just ban Fahrenheit 451. He wants to LIVE it!
crosswise the distance and comprehensiveness of this nation, from Maharashtra to West Bengal,
marvellous popularity in giving desired results to women is Vigorelle.
