Jack, not all children aspire to be scientist. Children shouldn’t be farmed as corporate wiglets. America shouldn’t compete with the world! The world should be competing with America and the arts has always been part of the American dream .
It’s great to have a wonderful paying job but there is life beyond the workday. The arts are a very important part of being. Without the arts there would be no Star Spangled Banner or America the Beautiful. Without the arts the world would be dark. Without the arts there would be no inspiration lifting America or the world out of it’s darkest hour.
The diversity of mankind cannot be forced into a society subservient to corporation and government. A life without the arts is a life without quality. Public schools shouldn’t be forced to limit the offering of the arts.
Jack your heart grows cold because you put you political aspirations before the real aspirations of children. Children need to following their calling and not be lied to. Expand the arts in our schools and let children be children. China is a repressive country and we need not tell our children China is the model for the Delaware.
It’s getting that time of year where employees gather around the water cooler debating whether or not they’ll get a Christmas bonus.
Folks if you have a job consider it Christmas everyday! Just be thankful you weren’t handed an envelope with a pink-slip, due to the economy we’re forced to let you go.
For those of you who receive a Christmas bonus show some heart and donate part of it to the Food Bank.
A.I. DuPont High School Band Director Paul Parets set to retire after this school year, July 1, 2012.
Putting all politics aside, Mr. Parets has created a world class high school band program long before “world class” was the newest buzzword. Parets is going to be a hard act to follow.
