I find this cause very important because if this gets cut out of our school systems I would be going to college for a lost cause, because I'm going for a music education major and various minors.

In my view, the arts make people better human beings. They connect cultures in a meaningful way.They promote critical thinking. The arts teach students how to literally 'think outside the box' thus encouraging greater overall creativity.

Fostering arts based program's in schools engages directly with the humanity , imagination and self esteem in students. The Arts define the soul of the broader community. Starve them and we are all diminished
