    Why would you not want to highlight how music is part of a whole educational experience, and has significance in understanding other subjects?

        The one about the kid just copying something from the web?

        That is the best argument you can muster? Essentially the argument is that it's no fun to have to learn how music is entwined with other subjects so we shouldn't have to teach it or learn it. Actually, with that attitude you and Mister T are making a stronger case for the  need for these standards.
