    Everyone should be worried about the defunding of arts and education. These things help to shape the youth who will outlive us. This country certainly doesn't need more defense spending, in spite of what Trump believes.

      Yes and sometimes Public TV also helps to enhance the education we get from public schools, often times even given us the more historical correct accuracies....Oh wait a minute, wait a minute maybe that's why Trump doesn't want it...

    Yes, and everyone should be. The educational emphasis today seems to be in math, sciences, and technology (and don't forget sports), but not everyone is talented nor would they be happy in these fields. There needs to be something for everyone, and public broadcasting and education can, and should have the opportunity, to fill these needs.Today even education itself has to be presented in such a manner that is government sanctioned. There has been criticism of these sanctioned education methods, but I think under our Republican Congress, we have to worry about the government's pushing a voucher system to send our young to private schools. Will that be where education funding will be diverted? That in itself contributes to a defunding of education and puts these vulnerable young people in mostly religious settings for their education.  That is an oxymoron because how can you fill little Johnny's head with creationism and teach him real science at the same time?
    There are some secular private schools, like Montessori, but not nearly as many as church-based schools. And who is to say how these vouchers will be divided among the populace?
    And I agree with others that we get a lot of our history and real news, in addition to music and the arts, through public broadcasting.
