I don't have a long post to make about this with links and a bunch of research. I just remember having a small debate about this in class once.

When I say arts, I mean any kind of art, so music, band, art, dance, theater, etc.

Do you believe that the arts should become a mandatory class in public schools in the US?

Do you believe the arts should be removed from the public school curriculum and replaced with other classes such as STEM classes or other courses?

Do you not care?

Do you think arts in school are fine the way they are and shouldn't be changed?

Personally, I don't care too much, but I had to take some art course last year, and I took music appreciation. It was easily my favorite class during the semester. I'm definitely against removing it completely, but I'm fine with it being the way it is right now. Of course, I also wouldn't mind it being mandatory as long as I got to choose which art I took.

I don't see a problem with it being mandatory if you can choose which kind of art to do.

NO.

It's fine the way it works at my school. (Well, at the middle school at least. Idk about high school.

If I'm correct, you have to take at least one art course while in school, whether it be art, music, dance, or theater related

At my school, you take one elective. It's an hour long every other day. The options are:
Theater
Band
Music appreciation
Video media
Keyboarding (typing)
Woodshop
Art
Choir
Guitar
I think that's it. We also have this 30 minute period in the middle of the day called "Dragon Time" where you can either take choir or band or use it as a study hall.

Not art, but art appreciation.

An educated public should include art appreciation. As it stands, now, few people even know what art is, let alone why it's important to a healthy society. Such that most people think art is 'entertainment'. And that entertainment is just another commodity to be generated and sold for profit.

Very sad. Because art is so much more, and more important than that.

I took art and music appreciation last year. They were two of my favorite classes
