Art and Music Classes Should Be Banned In The United States Educational System
Debate Rounds (1)
School is a place for learning, not drawing and singing. This brings me to my first point, having art and music classes takes away from the time students could be learning important and useful things. For example, you have a student who is doing poorly in Math and doesn't really enjoy having to take work home. Now, if we took art and music classes out of schools, the classes would be longer so the student will have more time in class to work on homework and talk to the teacher about the work.
My second reason is, some students are not very good at art or music. These students could fail the classes, I don't think that you can really grade art, but the teachers have to grade it. Also, if these students are bad at art and the teachers don't like the students art, the students can't really improve on their art. Then in music class, some students aren't good at music either, which could result in failing the class. Now, every school district has a different number of classes you can fail, but still pass the grade. So if a student failed art and music, they could fail the grade too.
If a smart student failed art and music that would ruin their chances of getting into a good college, and that could ruin their lives. So, do you really want students failing in school because of un-educational classes? Thank you for reading my argument, I hope you enjoyed it.
Also there are many creative people, banning these classes will just crush their dreams, and if you're an artistic person, taking the classes will help you a lot for Art school and even for Universities and Colleges.
I wouldn't say ban them, I would mostly say make them optional. Also I apologize if there are any grammar and spelling problems. I sort of rushed through this.

Reasons for voting decision: I wish I would have accepted this debate. Banning the arts from public education would be disastrous. The arts benefit all of us, not just a select few with talent. If anything, art, creative writing, dance, and music should be elective. But banned? Terrible idea.
