Is your kid bad at math? Warner Bros. have the answer.
Music Industry News - as it happens
Warner Bros have a plan to help kids improve their math and science scores.
"Students who play music do better in all academic subjects," says Fred S.
Anton, CEO of Warner Bros Publications in a Warner puff release.
And anyone who thinks this may be just a way to get people to buy a new
Warner Bros product has a nasty, suspicious mind.
Rather, "Because most kids drop out of music between earlier grade levels
and high school with apparently damaging effects on their math and science
scores, Warner Bros. Publications will release a comprehensive K-12 grade
music curriculum," says Anton.
Ergo, if teachers/parents/schoolboards, etc, buy WB's Enter Expressions
Music Curriculum, the drop-out rate will fall, he implies.
He doesn't say if WB's desire to help will extend to freeing up digital
audio on the Net, instead of trying to shut it down. And he doesn't say how
much the curriculum thingy be.
Let's hear it for Warner Bros.
