Most graduates of art schools go on to support themselves with a variety of odd jobs that have little or nothing to do with the graduatesâ€™ artistic training. This has led to major doubts regarding how well the art schools are preparing their students for careers in art.
Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the authorâ€™s criticism of art schools?
The curricula of most art schools tend to reflect the needs of the art world.
There are some graduates of art schools who go on to careers within the art world.
The purpose of an art school education is to ensure that students will be able to secure jobs in their fields.
People who intend to earn their livings in the field of art choose to go to art school to increase the quality of their work.
Students attend art schools with the intention of earning their livings in the art field.
If students attend art schools with the intention of earning their livings in the art field, then we can argue that the lack of students entering an art related field has less to do with their own personal choice then the fact that the preperation provided was poor.
I too initially chose C, but I now follow the logic behind E. E is actually a stronger strengthener.
Let's consider C first
Granted that the purpose of art schools is to get students jobs and let's say for a moment the art schools MAY/OR MAY NOT be fulfilling their purpose - by doing whatever they can - however if the students choose NOT to carry on in this field and prefer ODD jobs instead, art schools can't do much about it and it would NOT be fair to blame them. So this choice has no bearing on the final outcome of whether students secure a job or not - on which the author's argument hinges.
E on the other hand says - students WANT a career BUT they are not able to get it. This casts the most singular doubt on the usefulness of the art schools in securing jobs for their students.
Negate E - students DON'T want a job in art field and the argument that the art schools are NOT doing their JOB falls apart.
