Hope Carrasquilla initially spoke in the American media that she had lost her job because Michelangelo’s famous David was shown in class. This news sparked many reactions as many lamented that the Florida education system censored the broadcast of the historical masterpiece.
However, it seems that’s not exactly, or at least not only, that’s why the principal of the Tallahassee Classics was fired.
In an interview with CNN, Ms. Carrasquilla admitted that the school board’s relationship with her had deteriorated significantly over the past year, because the principal did not always follow procedure.
“The chairman of the committee was not happy with my work,” she said.
It’s becoming increasingly clear that the school needs to move in a different direction, under different leadership, Barney Bishop, president of the school board, told CNN. He reportedly told Hope Carrasquilla about it several times.
“She wasn’t fired for Michelangelo’s David,” says Mr. Bishop.
He maintains that every year Renaissance art is taught in class, but the problem is that Ms. Carrasquilla fails to follow the procedure that she has to warn parents that there will be a class broadcast of a picture involving nudity.
We are not trying to ban photography. We think it’s a nice job, but we’ll make sure parental rights are a priority,” explained the school board chair.
Mr Bishop stresses that it is not up to parents to decide what will be taught in class, but it is essential to ensure that they are warned if topics or images that may be shocking are discussed.
The head of the school board said that 97% of parents had no problem with David’s portrait of Michelangelo, but some did have complaints.
“If a parent is complaining and we haven’t followed procedure, we have to make sure we don’t repeat that mistake,” Barney Bishop assures.
