Art in the Public School Systems... Common Core
With things like Common Core and other standardizations, art, among other "extracurricular" classes are often cut from public schools. What are the negative impacts of this? How can children benefit from having their creative outlet taken from them, and how will they truly become well-rounded people if they are not exposed to a new ways of thinking, a variety of subjects and social interactions? While I can think of many negative effects of these "cuts," the positives are few and far between, and shaky at best.
