The Importance of Music in the Public School System
The TDSB has cut many, many hours per week of music programs (mainly itinerant programs). At the end of this video, they list the schools where music has been cut, and the number of hours of music instruction they had before and after the cuts.
These are good people who have tough decisions to make, and need to hear from parents and students what they value most.
Watch this incredibly inspiring and uplifting video with Melanie Doane, Jann Arden, and the students from her uschool.
