Currently HS credit classes are what kills us because parents want all the credits they can get. I've been explaining to kids and parents that our class isn't like a homework, essay, etc. class. Show up, do your job and take care of occasional playing assignments. Without my class, you're doing bookwork all day. Plus, after HS you can get paid to be in band in college to help pay for books, etc. Parents are coming around to the idea of free college money.
Best of luck!
