The College I teach at has gone PC mad! I have now been told I have to alter the project briefs I hand out to students to include diversity and be multi-cultural. Its jut going to stifle thier creativity!
My boss has tried re-writing them to include this and it sounds stupid. The students are studying Media Make-up Btec and are researching things like fashion designers and designing thier own make-up looks.
I will now have to tell them when I set them thier project when they have an open brief to design thier own bodypainting look - that actually they must create a multicultural design. Its so unfair on them - all that will happen is they will all start painting egyptian mummies and henna patterns and the like and it will bring the standard of work down because they will feel trapped. And then my life will be a misery trying to expain why the marks will go down.
They made us a do special millenium themes a few years ago as they were getting special millenium funding for it - they all painted robots...
Sigh am glad I'm about to resign!
college gone PC mad - how can you make people create multicultural art?
