Your post focused on defending yourself and the school districts you
mentioned rather than on how your former posts were construed by several
others - who have already mentioned their reactions to it. No one said
anything about school systems not being "worthy" of anything - this smacks
of martyrdom.......

To accuse me or anyone else of not caring is the worst insult
imaginable. That I or others may not agree with your definitions,
suggestions, or description of what exists - to say that we feel these
music programs are not worth of being fixed (whatever that means exactly)
is not indicative of someone who works for a common goal.

Trying to send best wishes,
Roger Garrett
