A Florida charter school principal resigned after complaints that sixth graders were exposed to pornography during a lesson on Renaissance art that included Michelangelo’s “David” sculpture. Batya Ungar-Sargon, deputy opinion editor at Newsweek, discusses the situation with “On Balance” host Leland Vittert, in the video published on March 27, 2023, by NewsNation, as “Florida principal resigns after ‘David’ statue uproar | On Balance“, below:
The principal of a Florida charter school resigned after parents complained that a picture of the statue of David by Michelangelo was shown to a 6th grade class, in the video published on March 28, 2023, by NBC News, as “Florida principal resigns after statue of David was show to 6th grade class“, below:
Perhaps more clear definition of pornography and historical significance of ‘Michelangelo’s David’should had been provided to parents. After all, educators need to educate not just the children or students but also the parents of schools. Perhaps parents should have done some research before reacting to such a beautiful masterpiece.
To better understand Michelangelo’s David, please refer to the excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below:
David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture, created in marble between 1501 and 1504 by the Italian artist Michelangelo. David is a 5.17-metre (17 ft 0 in)[a] marble statue of the Biblical figure David, a favoured subject in the art of Florence.[b]
David was originally commissioned as one of a series of statues of prophets to be positioned along the roofline of the east end of Florence Cathedral, but was instead placed in a public square, outside the Palazzo Vecchio, the seat of civic government in Florence, in the Piazza della Signoria, where it was unveiled on 8 September 1504. The statue was moved to the Galleria dell’Accademia, Florence, in 1873, and later replaced at the original location by a replica.
Because of the nature of the figure it represented, the statue soon came to symbolize the defence of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family. The eyes of David, with a warning glare, were turned towards Rome.
