I don't know the background of this arts school but it begs the question, why are we teaching art and piano when the children do not know reading, writing and arithmetic?
I talked recently to a teacher at Santa Monica City College.
Question: "How many entering students require remedial reading, writing, and arithmetic?"
Answer: "100%".
