Do Music and Art Classes Matter?
When schools need to cut their budgets, music and art classes are often some of the first things to go. Why do some people feel these classes are unnecessary? Why do others feel they're essential? These two questions are at the heart of what readers will find as they explore this essential education debate. The engaging text challenges them to understand why people have different points of view and to form their own point of view using facts, which they find in accessible fact boxes. With graphic organizers and colorful photographs filling the pages, readers will enjoy this critical-thinking exercise.
