Re: Time to Give Up?
I thought it was just my place and small schools. Sounds like your're in a big school. My community is similar to yours in that they don't want to have a successful program or even a decent band program. Kids have no commitment as far as sticking with band, even in the younger grades. They just look for the easiest possible classes with teachers who will not make them work hard. A lot of people here don't even work. It's a really hard place to teach in. I have my years in and could retire now if I wanted to. I may wind up doing just that.
