Default Re: Educational Supplies Rant

My oldest daughter is a high school band director...small school in Pennsylvania. Very low budget for the music program and she constantly has to fund raise, scrounge equipment and appeal to the School Board for adequate funds...most of the money comes from the parent's band association.

I give her any usable gear that I can...what I can find at pawn shops, what I no longer use, etc. I would strongly urge all of you to consider the same...have equipment you no longer need, no longer use...mid range stuff you have upgraded? Ask your local high school if they can use it...

Also, since here in most of America the school boards are elected...make sure determine where your board candidates lie when it comes to the arts. Make your vote count...
