Just pass it on, it's worth it!
The very fact that arts educators have to "lobby" to keep arts alive in our educational system in this country is an embarassment on a global level!
It has been proven time and time again that creativity is the key to success. Unfortunately, CA doesn't seem to believe this! Many students would have dropped out if not for their Arts class, whether it be visual, musical or drama. Kids need to have some fun!
Keep The Arts a top educational priority for our kids!
Art in school keeps kids out of gangs.
This is something that should never be taking out of schools, and away from the children of our future!
The people who want to eliminate public funding for the arts are the same group who want to sell the Grand Canyon for development. They are also the same group who want to stop people from creating art that demeans their 'God' or Jesus. The mainly belong to Americans for Prosperity, hate unions, hate workers, hate hippies and anyone who isn't white. They are also known as Kompassionate Kristian Konserfatives.
We at Children's Orchestra support Arts in the Schools! www.childrensorch.org
It's the answer to the future of all of us. It's the young who will have the imagination, stimulated by the arts, to see our way forward.
Arts in schools make for better citizens and just people in general!
