Wait a minute, let me be sure I understand this. If a student, who has no
experience in music whatsoever, says they want to be in the band, the band
director is required by court order to accept them? If I have this right,
this is pure lunacy, a good example of a judge trying to conduct social
engineering in an area in which he or she has absolutely no knowledge and
no understanding whatsoever.

A second question would be why such a student would decide to be in an
organization for which he has no qualifications and can derive essentially
none of the benefits of membership?
