Atlanta's Public School System Should Be Embrassed After Cutting Music Programs

Today was not a good day in the “A.” Despite documentation stating the benefits of public school music education, the Atlanta public schools have decided to cut music programs for this coming school year. Even worse was that they didn't give the teachers any warning in the process.
In a sitdown with Alive 11, music teacher Arthur McClenton said "We (music teachers) were blindsided, when other teachers received contracts, we received letters saying we were going to be abolished. We didn't know. It just hit us."
The school will offer General Music instruction to ensure the schools are "increasing instructional quality and efficiency." Atlanta native Big Boi and Odd Future rapper Tyler The Creator took to twitter to share their disapproval on the decision.
I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me - like food or water. - Ray Charles, born in Albany, Georgia

This is really sad. Even though I wasn't super into my music classes in middle school (saxophone represent!!!) I know a lot of kids whose lives literally changed because of those courses.
@danidee I agree with you completely. It's wild that they don't see how successful music is within the community there. The XXL Freshmen list that just dropped had three people from Atlanta on it (OG Maco, Raury, K-Camp) and could have easily had one of two more (Makonnen, Father, etc.)
That's really depressing. Especially since Atlanta is such a musical hub of the US. They should be fostering that kind of creative growth in these kids, not taking it away!

Yanan [of Pentagon] Calls Out Cube
Pentagon's Yanan has been on hiatus since before Pentagon's last comeback 'Humph!' Yanan was present in the song but not in the music video due to health issues. After that statement we heard nothing from Cube about Yanan's health or the boy in general. When his birthday arrived they still posted about him to celebrate but gave no update on him. A few days ago Yanan took to his personal Weibo account to update us Universe on his current hiatus and situation. Yanan expressed in his post that he's been well for awhile and ready to return to the group but Cube has not replied to when he can return to promoting with the rest of the members. Cube has not responded to Yanan's post and the last thing they've posted about him was that he would not be particpating in Pentagon's world tour awhile back. Furthermore Yanan has been seen hanging out with Hyojong (Dawn/E'Dawn) and Hyuna recently as well. Some people think he is being punished for his continued friendship with the former Cube Entertainment artists. To read Yanan's full Weibo post click here. Cube please don't kick him out of the group, the boys have been through so much already!! I miss Yanan let him come back!! - Universe Citzens: @SugakookieV @mitchix5 @Sailynn @EvilGenius @Starbell808 @KpopBeat @ImHayley @Changkyunie @Infinitysky @Yugykookie97 @Just2BLoved @VeronicaArtino @SerenaArthurs @SweetDuella @BoyGroupKpop @MaeLyn @MelissaGarza @QueenyCrossGene @TaylorHill5 If you'd like to be tagged please let us know!
