Re: Performaning Arts programs cut -

Ok here's my thing. This is what happened at my alma mater, they cut chorus and drama and are firing 50 teachers. But my thing is, they don't give drama any money anyway. My senior year we were given less than $200. So I just say leave the chorus and drama teacher, and you can take away the funding because all the real money was made through fundraising anyway. And if why completely cut the performing arts, but leave all 6 art teachers, and two band teachers, not to mention the useless coaches that don't do anything. I just feel that the decision was irrational.
