All around this country, we have seen a lack of interest in funding music and the arts. One of the worst offenses that I have notices is having to make a choice between "Physical Education" and "Music Education". As both are important in the development of students creative minds and physical training, both should be core curriculum. One organization that has been battling this crisis for decades on a national level is "Music in Schools Today" http://mustcreate.org/index.html As other local communities have started organizations to petition for more funding for the arts, I have yet to see this for my area: Portland, Maine. I have also talked with educator from across the country that this is happening in thier area as well. Some local communities are addressing this problem, but too manmy are not I would love to hear your comments, suggestions and solutions, Your feed back would be greatly appreciated.
