Who Could Be Against Arts Education?

Um, me, if it's like this.
a growing movement of art education professors and others who think that the primary aim of art education should be to achieve what they view as "social justice." Their influence is evident in the NAEA, which adopted "Art Education and Social Justice" as this year's convention theme. To drive the message home, the logo employed for the meeting was the raised-fist symbol commonly associated with radical political activism—in this instance, clenching a pair of paint brushes.
No thanks. How about teach the kids to draw and read music instead?
