Rap Music at School Dances

School dances have been around forever and kids seem to really enjoy them. It gives them a great opportunity to meet new kids and have fun together. These dance most likely include music to dance to and the argument of which music they hear on school grounds is very debatable.

Rap music is one of the most popular genres of music to dance to in the world. With its specific rhythm and beat, it makes for a great dancing theme. The worst anchor weight that rap music carries with it, is the fact of provocative lyrics. If you listen to music and don’t live under a rock, then you have heard some nasty rap music lyrics.

Should Our Kids Be Hearing This

When the kids are out of school, their parents hold the choice of what is brought into their living environment and what is not. But in an open faculty arrangement like a public school, what is introduced to the kids must be selected carefully. Not everything is agreeable on by all parents and teachers. The question is, is rap music too explicit to listen to at a public school dance?

The Ultimate Cure to Our Problem

The most logical answer to this dilemma is to just play rap music with clean lyrics, correct? Not exactly. One student’s parents feel even those clean lyrics are not for her son to hear. One persons idea of clean lyrics differ from anothers. So this creates the ideal dilemma of not having a conclusion that ends well for both sides.

Just Quarantine “My Child” from Rap

At the end of the day, most public schools are going to play rappers music because these kids can hear this stuff on their local radio so what’s really to worry about, right? That’s your judgement call to make. If you don’t agree, you can always quarantine your kids of scenarios like these and become strict parents.

It really boils down to how firm you believe how much rap music can have an effect on your son or daughter. There are some very explicit songs playing right now as we speak. What effect could it be doing ask yourself.
