Re: The Scary Future of Band Directing
The cost on the community and district for such competitive marching programs is absurd. The money would be better spent on the total needs of all bands in the district, beginner through 12th grade. I'm sure with the $500 fees the parents are picking up, there are excluded families out there whose kids would like to be in the marching band if they could afford it. It is an elitist game of the haves and have nots. Business as usual.
