Does pop culture deserve serious study?
I think that popular culture should be studied in schools, especially music. Often the challenges which artists must overcome to become who they are now are very inspiring. We can learn from their perseverance and the struggles they faced, which students often experience too. We can learn that you can be anything that you want to be when you put in the effort and keep persevering.
