  • Math because you need math in pretty much every career
    English class because it teaches you the proper way to write and say things.

  • I don't see Library as a study... It's just a place with books... But Art, Music, Drama - all very important. It's been proven that students exposed to these things not only learn better but retain more of what they learn. As for PE, I see no point in it, I never took it. But it's the only way some kids get any exercise...

  • All of them but if I had to order them by what I felt most necessary and not to be cut from the budget I guess it would go library, P.E. music and art. I think. lol It's hard to say.

  • PE lets you get exercise from sitting so much in other classes but does not teach proper eating and diet.

    i would agree with math

  • The schools have recently deleted for the most part the PE programs, and those are very important, there is nothing like a good exercise routine to bring out those good feel endorphins and to learn to make it a lifetime commitment, our society has become technology geared and mostly sit and play video games, or type away in a computer.

  • Art all the way. I consider myself artistic. I like to write, paint and sing. I may not be the best but I had 2 art teachers at 2 different elementary schools tell me I was the worst artist and I was stupid to be different. I don't think art is supposed to all be the same. I encourage my kids to be creative. Maybe I over do it because I don't want them to give up like I did...

  • The first poster I said OTHER than studies and library Sabrina isn't lol it is just something I now my step sons have a special a few times a week. Anyway I think music is the most important. Think about it. You learn your ABC's before school right? It's a song and how a lot(me included) of people remember what comes before what!
