@Kings CourtYes, it's too bad. But given the choice of having
to eliminate arts or math, I choose arts. The reason: Education exists to
prepare people to be able to earn a living, and more people earn a living by
being good at math than by being good at arts.
It is too bad they ignore the arts. The arts is one of the great drivers of
American innovation. Stripping arts from education (or at least devaluing the
importance of the arts) is a grave, grave mistake.
