Default Re: Educational Supplies Rant

Geez, this makes the Australian education system actually look very good.

My high school has about 1500 students (in fact it is split over two campuses), the gear is pretty cheap but atleast the year 10-12 students take good care of their gear, we get cheap but decent kits (a Gretsh Catalina Birch and a Pearl Export), scheduled lessons and time to rehearse during lunch-time...there is a music technology class...as well as the oppurtunity to participate in yearly concerts and recording projects.

...makes me feel a grateful, but this issue definitely is pointing at how overall arts are under-funded and sport always gets the better deal.
