Makes me feel sick teachers works hard and are under payed for all they do. Teachers deal with so much and so over looked. As parents will not feel the affects until we see what is taken away from classtrooms. Say good bye to music, art, etc. and say hello to bigger classrooms and more problems.

Slaves don't need much of an education. Just slap down that burger or twist that bolt. That's all corporate elites care about; cheap, dumb labor to crank out profits.

Funny how music and art are viewed as things that can be eliminated from an education.

If we were truly concerned about giving children an education, that is making them thinking and enquiring minds in a society, these are both useful if not key subjects to teach.

On the other hand, if the goal of an 'education' is to make the children into good drones who can work for corporations, then these are optional courses that can be cut.

Anyone who's been paying attention wasn't surprised that 'music' and 'art' get cut.
