"Core content"

Not really sure how it is in the rest of the US, but, here in Kentucky, they seem to be pulling a lot of money from the education system. And because of it, they start pulling elective classes. Apparently, the politicians that they put matters like this in the hands of seem to think that if we have knowledge of the four basic classes, that we are set for whatever job we want. But, let me ask you this: Which would help someone more become a musician: Calculus, or Music Theory? Music theory, of course. And if if you pull music classes, kids who want to do that will struggle when they graduate high-school with only basic musical knowledge and then take a college level music class. Sure, the core-content classes will help the most widely, put they wouldn't have to pick and choose if they would stop pulling money. Shouldn't education be a priority?

I grew up in a small school that lacked funds for anything but the most basic classes. It sucks, but in hard times, some things need to be sacrificed. And if the kid is passionate about music, he/she can always find other ways to get educated, ie. private music classes, friends, youtube, other free or subscription sites, family, ect. Or perhaps yall could start organizing after school music classes, either requiring fees to keep it running or doing cookie sells/ concerts/ whatever yall are comfortable with.

Here in Germany we have some schools where there's only half of the physics, chemistry, IT, art, music and history that is required by state curriculum in years 5-7, and thats only a year for each.
