That is a respectable decision and perhaps the only option for that
particular parent, but I do not agree. I think that art is a valuable
part of education, just as important as any other subject. If a parent
doesn't want his/her children to be exposed to hitler because he was a bad
man, then do you think it is an option to take the kid out of history
class, I don't think so. The kid would end up failing that particular
section in history. I think it is probably a good idea to expose kids at
young ages to various art forms in other cultures, so that when they are
old enough to understand what they are seeing, they won't be so immature
about it. But those are just my thoughts...
