Do you think music and art should be removed from schools, why either way?
No. Studies show that music students achieve higher in regular academics. Plus, music and art education help us maintain our culture and keep us human. If we take out the creative arts, we might as well be robots.
No, not at all. I think that a good education, starting in elementary school, gives the student a broad view of a range of subjects. It helps them form a more clear picture of our world. Not having art or music would be such a tremendous loss as they both are an important part of many cultures.
Donnah75 and duffsmom I am so glad to hear both of you say that. It gets tiring defending the arts in the school, it is good to know others are on my side.
Absolutely not. Art and music are essential to education as much so as the three r's. the essence of creativity and imagination is just as important as other studies including physical education. Mind, body and spirit must always be challenged for a complete education.
Definitely not! I love the arts myself and I believe that there is so much untapped talent from students in the arts. They should be given the opportunity to express and explore their creative skills in that field.
No, they should not be removed. Some kids have a tough time with school and need these subjects to keep them interested and motivated.
I also think that music and art are great teaching tools that can relate to other subjects. For instance, there are a lot of ways that music and art can be related to math, science, history, literature and almost any subject, starting at the earliest ages.

Obama under the guise of not making new citizens pledge allegiance to this country has removed it from other places including the schools! Surely all others in power will not let this stand, do you think? So many wanted to deny the absence of flags at the DNC but clearly this is what it is all...
