'The View': Carol Channing gets 'down and dirty' for arts education

Perhaps the words " Carol Channing" and "down and dirty" aren't what turns you on. But trust us -- it's for a good cause.

(And it's not actually dirty, so no need to send the kids away.)

The 89-year-old stage legend was a guest on "The View" Wednesday (July 21), and she made a plea for funding of arts education in public schools, discussing her work in funding scholarships for students and making the case that the arts can help students in other areas as well.
