Hi All, Just got this email from TeachersFirst. They're leaving the question up for another week, and have addressed what they meant :) (I think we made them say hmmmmmmm.. )

About Last Week
Last week's question of the week, asking about the relationship of the arts to teaching
science and math, drew a number of very thoughtful replies, and a few we weren't expecting.
Some of you commented that we appeared not to value the arts as subjects in and of
themselves. That was certainly not our intent, and we endorse the idea that music and art
belong in the curriculum as much as English or Math. It was experiences with connections
between the arts and math or science for which we were searching.
