Just got the phone call that the school principal (who is most definitely NOT my pal) got wind of our Shakespeare project, decided that he too was uncomfortable with the potential content, and that since it is not part of the state curriculum, in short, we can’t do it. Period.
Since my kids have to actually spend a few years in this school system I will limit my opinions on the subject, but I’m sure you all can gather what they may be.
I want to thank everybody who came flocking to my rescue, flooding me with no end of resources on how we might be able to make it work. We all know that the subject can be taught at this level, many of you have experience doing exactly that. And we all know that it is a *good* and *positive* thing. I just happen to have hit a dead end this time.
I’m temporarily down, but I’m very much not out. Watch this space for future efforts to climb back up that hill.
