What right have you to deem what is necessary for a child's development? Who are you to speak on matters of which you know not of? Art has shaped the world, has remained constant. Before Math, Science, there was ART. In all of it's forms, musical, non-musical, visual, and all things aesthetic. Shame on you, and your organization for downplaying the essential role of arts in the development of a child. Listen to Gabriel Faure's "Pie Jesu" when one of your loved ones dies. In fact, play it to a child when their loved ones die. See the effect art will have. Show someone of a Scientific mind the millions upon millions of paintings in the world depicting the very things that these men of the world study. You are as poorly educated as those of the Westboro Baptist church. Shut down operations immediately.
