  •  You are right to be angry (20+ / 0-)

    You are right to be angry, but I think your anger is directed at the wrong target.

    Is it NPR's fault?  Is it the fault of music or math teachers?  Is it the fault of the people publishing the Academic Music materials?

    Or is it the fault of a system of government that puts the financial desires of the wealthy and corporate interests above the needs of our kids, our schools, and our country itself?

    As a music teacher, you have no doubt been facing diminshed job prospects for some time.  Believe me, it won't be too long before someone comes up with a way to make money that involves getting rid of math teachers.  Or maybe, our law-makers will decide to close the schools altogether (faith-based education, the next great thing!!  all the better to lie to you, my dear!!).

    You're right to be angry.  Don't lose sight of how this came to be.
