Re: Todays Local Paper, Music Dropped
I have seen this a lot lately. It depends on the district, but things like art, music and sports are not government mandated. What is government mandated is 'English as a second language education.' Obviously people need to be able to speak English more than they need to play a trumpet. I am sure it would be very district dependent, but I think demographics shifts play a large part in burdening individual school systems beyond their capacity to continue to offer things that aren't absolutely essential.
