I disagree because poetry is a literary art in which language is used for its aesthetic an evocative qualities as well as the language's normal meaning. Poetry is an art, art is inseparable from education; art is what makes us human, and that which makes us human is certainly to be taught in schools.

Dear Friends,

With heavy heart I must oppose
This propo that my oppo chose.

For blue of heart and red of rose
Can only yield us purpled prose.

Melodrama is made worse
By bronzing all our angst in verse.

Let us rather pop that pimple
Teach the youth to say it simple.

All in all, and each to each
Banning poetry I preach.
