This seems to be the opposite of what we're all about as educators. Speaking from my own high school experience, if there had been of fee of almost any amount, I couldn't have been in band. Band saved my life and affected me in a way that enticed me to help affect kids in the same way, not just kids with money. If there's something in this that I'm missing, I'd like to hear it. I don't want our activity to be only for the elite students that already have more advantages, anyway.
