What about the job market?
While I see the validity of Robinson's talk, I am concerned that if we encourage the youth to pursue artsy careers they may end up in financial trouble. I am currently a freshman in college and I see firsthand that the majors such as dance, music, etc., are extremely hard to become successful in. The best paying jobs lie within engineering, technology, and mathematics.
Questions to consider: Can there be a balance between academics and arts? Is fulfilling your passion more important than financial security?
