It has been argued that school should focus on maths and science rather than music and art. And the reasons for that are:
Maths and science provide us with basic knowledge that help us to broaden our horizons
If you are good at these subjects, You will probably get well-paid jobs
Maths and science can also improve our logical skills
To what extent, Do you agree or disagree?


My argument will be that music and art takes logic as well. Furthermore, I will demonstrate that music and art teach skills that can't get in math or science and that these skills can help people get good paying jobs.

I will explain my first point
Math and science provide us with basic knowledge which will certainly help in our daily life as well as broaden our horizons
For example, Basic knowledge about geometry will form a foundation on how things shape or in-depth knowledge about structure of constructions such as our own house. As it is undeniable that these kinds of knowledge play an important role in our developing process, Math and science are essential subjects which should be fully focused.


I agree with you about math and science. Music and art exercise special recognition, Which is a good quality for architects, Computer programmers, Drafters, Etc. They also teach muscle memory, Which give them the ability to perform complex, Repetitive tasks, Much like the ones that you would expect to see in manufacturing jobs. Painters make great surgeons because surgeons have to succeed on the first try and so do painters, Etc. The least we can say is that these subjects are far from useless.

Schools should focus more on math and science for SOME students but NOT all. Everyone has their different strengths and passions which could be an academic field or a more creative one. I think we don't focus enough on music and art in schools a lot of the time.

Well, History and etymology will disagree with you. The first universities were labeled as such for teaching many subjects.

Oh! Mr. K michael tolman

What u suppose from university meanings
I have totally opposite of it,
In practical the university r the one o one thing that
R specific education provider. ( Not a bit closer to universal)

Means they only give a single enlightenment of purpose.

Ever hear the term "university"? That means that your education should be universal. No subject overlooked. The "Renaissance Men, " as men who attended early universities were called, Were scientists, Mathematicians, AND artists.
