I think we need to be really careful using the argument that an arts education improves academic performance. This can't be the leading argument for keeping the arts in our public schools, because it perpetuates the idea that academics are more important than art, and art is only there as a support. The arts need to be valued on their own merits, and gain an equal footing with academics. Without art in our schools we are building the foundations for intellectually unhealthy citizens and communities.
