Do you like to watch art exhibitions?
Are you eager to discuss and critique artworks with others?
This may sound great
It seems to be resisted by others
Right now, I am going to introduce
David by Michelangelo.
For centuries, people have regarded it as an art classic,
but did you ever expect that it would be called pornographic sometimes in the 21st century because of its nudity, and also caused resignation.
The principal of Tallahassee Classical School, a Christian charter school, Hope Carrasquilla, was resigned in March 25th
after an ultimatum from the school board’s chairman because one parent complained about the showing of an image of Statue of David in one
art class was pornographic. Also, two other parents said they wanted to be notified before the lesson was given to their children.
The chairman of the school board, Barney Bishop stated that the principal used to send notice to parens for warning them students are going to see
David, but this year the school did not.
"Parents are entitled to know anytime their child is being taught a controversial topic and picture.” The chairman pleaded
Dario Nardella, the mayor of Florence, invited the teacher who showed the students the image of Michelangelo's David to visit the city and its
art work, he also tweeted that “art is civilization and those who teach it deserve respect.”
Alex Lanfranconi, communications director for the Florida Department of Education, said:
“The Statue of David has artistic and historical value. Florida encourages instruction on the classics and classical art, and would not prohibit its use in instruction,”
But he also stated that
"The matter at the Tallahassee Classical School is between the school and an employee, and is not the effect of state rule or law."
The NPR reported about the operating model for Tallahassee Classical School.
it is a charter school, taxpayer-funded and tuition free, but it is independent from the local school district and parents consider it as an alternative to the public school system.
Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida has strong connection with this school and usually communicate with Hillsdale College
This is a conservative Christian college in Michigan and the Floriaa governor communicate with it due to consultation.
