: a real lawyer would argue your butt right out
: of your job. You are breaking the law. Not
: UIL, but state law enforced by TEA. I
: promise if you were to take this on with the
: wrong legalistic parent you would lose.
: Back in the 90's a director at a 6A high
: school tried to enforce his rule that
: "all" students in his first band
: would take private lessons or not be in the
: the first band. A parent challenged him on
: it, told if the kid was good enough to make
: first band he/she without lesson she/he
: should be in the band and that if he thought
: the kid needed extra he should give the kid
: lessons himself or someone on the staff
: because thats what they are paid for.
: Director would not back down. That
: legalistic parent got TEA involved and the
: whole state just about lost our private
: lesson program. We managed to keep but the
: whole system changed for a few years in the
: 90's until TEA lost interest and it has gone
: back pretty much the way it was.
: You are band director not a lawyer. What
: you are arguing is wrong and if a parent
: chooses to push it you will lose.
