OPINION: New Bedford Public Schools shouldn’t display art that disrespects our President

Should New Bedford Public Schools be displaying art from students disparaging President Trump? A reader shared his concern about a student’s art titled ‘Big man, Big pig’ being displayed at New Bedford High School. The following was shared in the New Bedford Politics Facebook group:

“Recently I attended the Art Display put on by New Bedford Public Schools and found this disgusting piece of junk work on display!! Why was this on display, it was not art but rather a piece of scrap that belongs in the trash. Since when did it become ok for schools to allow students to disrespect the President of the United States??? Would this art teacher have allowed a student to make a similar project illustrating Obama and Monkeys?? I think not because it would have been considered racist, right!! So how is this any different?? Why is politics playing a part in art class? Is this what NB Public Schools is proud of, obviously because they allowed it to be displayed.” – Chris Soares
