    I'm not too sure on that one. It may be true though. I remember a few years back, a recruiter had called my house looking for me to see if I wanted to enlist in the Air Force--I declined. About 4 days later there was this HUGE job fair at my school, and--lo and behold--half the friggin' job fair was populated by military recruiters. >_<

    I doubt that a school declining to give out student records is gonna affect its funding though.

    It IS true. It was published in a number of magazines after a high school girl found out about that "law" (which says schools have to submit students' info) while doing research for a school project. It kind of contradicts what the Constitution says about everyone, including students, having the right to withhold their personal information in cases where it is being given out without their consent... so yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if that was the cause of many art classes being removed. But I understand that that's not the only thing that could possibly bring about the abolishment of arts classes or clubs or other school activities.

    You do have a good point, Ms. Rebel, i'm not doubting that! and i certainly don't put it past the American government to do that... but then again, i don't think it happens that much to cause the cutting of art classes... school board members are pretty spineless, so i think for the most part they comply with what the government says and all they really do is fuss and fum in disagreement...

    Agreed. The government may have a law in place saying that schools have to give up student info to military recruiters, but I don't think that that's why art is getting cut in this state. I'm not doubting that it actually happens--in fact it makes perfect sense to me--but I think it's more or less the state of Minnesota being very materialistic.

    Over the last five or six years, this state has built a new arena, a shopping mall/movie theater, a Hard Rock cafe, and a plethora of other buildings that do nothing but spend tax dollars that could be going towards education and keeping art in schools.

    I think that it's just a matter of time before teachers in this area go on strike; because I doubt that all students are interested in art, and the ones that are interested are vastly outnumbered by kids who think that high school sports are more important.

    I hated visual art, I just couldn't do any of the things they asked me to do and so I've started to dislike art, but maybe it happens like this just in my country or just with me, the thing is that visual art is good as long as they don't push you to do art in a maner that is comon, as long as you can expess yourself.
    I think it's no good to cut arts from schools, arts help children in developing, but I think you have to change the way you're teaching arts, to make it more interesting and usefull too, at least in Latvia...

    Art is life!! I feel like kids--no, people in general--learn better when art is involved. Kids love art! I love art! I learned more in art and music classes than I did in any of the basic classes. You can learn basic math through music, and you can learn geometry through visual art!

    I feel like we should keep art in classes, what do you think?
    I totally agree...With out Art and Music and what-not...Kids would have no style or imagitive stuff....plus they couldnt dance!
