Why arts should be part of our education system

Last week, the Turner Prize was announced and both the presenter, Jude Law, and winner Elizabeth Price, took the opportunity to raise the issue of proposed changes to the UK secondary school curriculum as outlined by education secretary Michael Gove, which could see arts subjects left out of the timetable for many students.

Tate Kids have put together a short film, which features primary schoolchildren, teachers and Artis creative specialist discuss why arts are so important in our education system.
