"Children with disabilities, their parents, teachers, administrators, advocates, attorneys, and adult educators, all have a key role to play in the micro-politics of special education. The children - in the middle - are pivotal in the growing special education saga. This book brings together people with disabilities and others who advocate for their cause with expertise in special education law, administration, severe and profound disabilities, ethics, foundations, finance, teaching, disability rights, and culture. All these people work together to develop an awareness that beyond the administrative aspects of special education and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) are micro-political issues that affect how children with disabilities are educated."-- Provided by publisher.

This book is for anybody considering a career as a secondary art teacher. It provides basic information about what the job of an art teacher is and who the art students are. Then it presents ways to help make a studio-based art class relevant to teens, providing the future teacher with some tools to help encourage an atmosphere conducive to making "brave" art.The ability to learn from art (and thus each other) in safe and caring classroom atmospheres is the core of a brave art paradigm. This method of instruction (and learning) is based on a trust in art and humanness, which begins with the teacher/leader and eventually filters into the students. Under this philosophy brave art for teens is not about making art objects. It is about finding life-meaning via reflecting upon the art-making process.
