Re: Todays Local Paper, Music Dropped
The only way to combat the dropping of the arts in our schools is to remind the school boards who they work for. Make sure you attend school board meetings (you don't have to be a parent, you are a tax payer)...
As a drummer who also started in 4th grade AND the proud dad of a daughter who is now a middle school band director and high school marching band director, it is crucial to take back control of the schools.
To much effort on making sure the kids can pass standardized tests (if they are taught properly they can) and too much effort on politically correct topics.
Losing the arts at young, eager to learn ages is an absolute tragedy...
Get involved, speak your minds and do what you can to keep music in the schools.
