And the list goes on and on.  As the economy struggles, many school districts faced with budget crisis continue to target the downsizing or complete elimination of their music / arts programs.   I believe we all agree on how important this education is for our children.   Then why is it that the schools just don't get it?

How do you feel on this subject?   Aside from writing or calling our local /state representatives and filing petitions, what else can we do to fight back?  We'd love to hear your thoughts - please comment below.
