Dear Fellow SHAKSPER Members,

I do not know Boston Public, but, undoubtedly, we will get it on one of
the channels of Spanish TV sometime next year.

I often wonder if American TV ?High School? series do reflect the kind
of phenomena that can be found in real life in any average USA secondary
education institution. I must say that they give an awful image of
American education (and they give us a foretaste of what is coming in
Spanish education since, unfortunately, both the government and
teenagers here reproduce what -according to my sources- has been going
on in America for years: lowering of standards, responsibility and
discipline, and general confusion about what is a must and what is not.

I also wonder if to counteract this kind of ideas -busting the
Bard-(future film: Bard-busters?), Aldous Huxley?s Brave New World,
Orwell?s Nineteen Ninety-Four, and Ray Bradbury?s Farenheit 459 (both
novel and film) would serve as antidotes.

J. Cora.

Concerning the possibility of Shakespeare being performed less and less
in the US due to the lack of women's roles, Stuart Manger writes:

Last year in Stratford I met a woman college student from Bavaria who
told me that Shakespeare is very popular at her school and they overcome
the lack of women

Colleagues,

I have a recurring question that troubles me, and I want to pose it to
all of you.

As I wrote in another post, I am a drama director at a small high school
in southern Indiana in the United States. At my school, I have mounted
five Shakespeare productions (two productions of MND, one of Much Ado,
