Cutting art from the curriculum
This article is from the Daytona Beach News Journal. It talks about cutting the arts from the school curriculum because "there isn't enough time" for them.
Well, gee! Children in the United States are in school about two weeks per year less than European kids and about three weeks less than Japanese or Korean kids and here is a school system cutting the hours in the day! Children need more instruction, not less, and the type of instruction that includes the arts makes it easier for kids to learn!
What is this school system THINKING?!!!
