DRAMA IS A MAJOR PART OF THE ARTS

To the editor:

I am an eighth-grade student, and I attend Bennion Junior High School in Granite School District. To pass the eighth grade in Granite District, each student is required to take a semester of an art class. The choices are art, arts and crafts, some type of shop or home economics.During the first semester, I have taken drama, and now I am being required to take an art class. Drama isn't considered an art, but home economics is considered an art. Drama is a major part of the arts, but according to the school board, it's not.

I think that in the junior high schools, drama should be regarded as a type of art and the students given credit for taking it.
