New art czar, David Roche, has been hired to turn the public school art crisis around. The funding for the arts is so bad that his own pay is a byproduct of donations from a committee made up of CPS, local arts and philanthropic representatives.
Mr. Roche has stated plans to create a “No Child Left Behind” in the arts which conjures all sorts of odd images.
Images that the children will draw in crayon during their 8 min art classes each school day. Think pictures of sad children with sad houses under a sad green sky with factories off in the distance that pour smoke day and night made from the burning of art, children’s dreams & unicorns, yes unicorns with rainbow manes.
I wish him all the luck possible with this new position and have started the stopwatch counting the minutes till he leaves for a better job where they have things called “budgets” “money” & “hope”.
