Favorite comments of '09: Joanne Jacobs on art projects

Re: Portfolios are coming home: insights into grade rationing, Joanne Jacobs writes:

A friend of mine hired a high school student to help her fourth-grade son produce dioramas. She reasoned that no educational purpose had been advanced for the art projects so it didn't matter who did them. She has a lot of artistic skills herself, unlike her son, but has a full-time job.
