Often when schools face budget cuts, art and PE classes are first to suffer. Is this fair?

The arts and PE are essential for holistic learning development. We need them both!
If they don't have the money, what else can they cut?
Reading, writing and math are most important! The rest is frills.
I don't care.

Should we keep the math and dump music?

They should cut extra curricular sports before PE. PE benefits all the kids and sports only a small number of kids.

There needs to be a place for arts and athletics in every school.
