Teaching the arts alongside STEM education is not a great idea. It is a waste of time to establish STEAM, which Yo-Yo Ma has come up with. He has explained that it is important to teach these classes for students to learn empathy and feelings, but I don’t that it’s necessary to have classes where the skills can be learned by basic life experience. The arts also don’t really go with the science, technology, engineering, and math categories. It is it’s own thing that doesn’t give the same amount of knowledge needed for successful career paths.
