Can anyone help me out by answering some simple opinion questions about the arts for my research paper?

I am writing a research paper arguing that there should be more funding for the arts (art, music, drama, etc...) in schools and I need an interview. I can only use your answers though if you include your name and "authority." Like what title relates to the topic (parent, teacher, student, etc...). If you don't want your name public, you can pm it to me. And you can answer even if you don't think there should be more funding, I need both sides in my paper. Any other opinions are welcome too!

How important do you feel the arts programs in schools are?

Does your local school offer arts programs?

How do you think children would be affected if there were no arts programs?

How do you think children would be affected if there were more arts programs?

Do you feel like things learned in arts programs are helpful in other aspects of life?
