I was rummaging through Facebook and did a search for "ceramics" for fun. Turns out there are a few groups you can join. I noticed some with titles like "Save our XYZ department." Without searching too hard I found the Glasgow School of Art (the last stand in Scotland) and the Ontario College of Art and Design. Here's quote, I imagine from a student's perspective.

"We are an endangered species our numbers are dropping, surely an institution such as the G.S.A should be more interested in saving us and our sanctuary in the hope to breed more potters than leaving us out in the cold for extinction. We are resilient and will not die quietly, they underestimate us at every chance but they do not know who they are messing with!!!"

Sounds like they G.S.A. doesn't want to "breed more potters"... Sound familiar?
