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?

The arts and PE give children important skills for LIFE. They're just not "important" for the standardized testing that is ruining their educations.
