    No, no they don't.

    And even if they do, they do so at the expense of a real education.

    There are still great PE, music, and art classes, and there are after school activities, my kids even get Chinese classes.
    And they'll learn how to take tests in those subjects from now on. You must be in a fairly decent area if you've still got all those things, a lot of places are cutting them so they can focus on tests.
