    He makes very valid points
    At the moment I'm studying all the "academic subjects" like physics, chemistry , math etc. I also study TEE art which can count towards my university entrance mark. Now according to subjects difficulty and other variables, the marks are scaled down accordingly, My academic subjects only can get scaled down 1-5 percent now my art mark can get scaled to a WHOPPING 25 percent on average, meaning if i get less than 75 percent I can fail. This just show's that art to the education department is the skid mark of the school system. I have to be able to write at the ability of literature students in my exams, have insane skills in painting in drawing and also prepare a massive book of my "journey" to my final painting which is only made to satisfy external markers. Thanks for reading my enraged rant at the schools education system who shits on humanities only so they can make me into a working stiff too fuel the economy.
