It is my belief our educational system would be more successful if first approached through fine art, literature and music. Students would find greater incentive to think, to consider the need to reason and to follow a code of ethics. Further would be a greater comprehension of geography, global history, political science, economics and religion. Then would follow a greater concern for mathematics, sciences, technology and ecology.
