I'd agree with this if the schools were teaching Art.  But they are not.
They are either teaching whatever 'artistic' fad is current, or teaching
that simply throwing something togther and labeling it 'art' make it Art.

Art involves communication.  If a piece fails to communicate, far more
often the failure lies with the 'artist' than the viewer.
