Re: Is it time to disclose marching program COSTS?
Maybe, but how and who is going to police that? Even if there is somebody checking I'm sure there are some "creative" accounting practices that can lower the reported expenditures.
Across the state, heck even within the bounds of a region, it is clearly evident that there is discrepancy among marching band programs regarding financing the end product. Is it time that directors and schools disclose how much money went to designers, props, special uniforms, special hats, music arrangers, professional drill-writers, contracted marching and front ensemble techs who aren't on staff, guard weapons, electronics, and such?
Dare I say that there should be a CAP on such expenses? (It's just increasing the equity gap.)
