I heard a rumor today that art, music and phy ed are in serious peril in the
state of Nebraska (followed by the comment that Michigan is also talking
about eliminating these programs). I assume this is at the elementary level?
Is there any truth in these reports? If so, what can we do to help? Are there
other states with similar problems? It is hard for me to imagine that
Wisconsin would do without their specialists in these areas, but I also heard
today that state funding for our summer school programs (which is very arts
oriented and includes a big musical production as well as an opera created by
the younger kids) will only exist for two more years.
