Though I've been lucky enough to attend a high school with a high emphasis placed on fine arts, financed by local taxpayers, I know there are many out there that aren't so lucky, and have been feeling pressured to cut "extra" music, art, and tech programs in order to comply with Bush's No Child Gets Ahead... er, No Child Left Behind legislation. Heck, I wrote and gave a speech on the cons of the act several months ago. It sucks.
Good luck to those districts that are fighting back. Win this courtroom battle.
