How schools across the nation are restoring programs in music/arts education with the significant savings of solar power installations
For decades, there's been a lot of buzz going around regarding the lack of funding in schools across the U.S. All too often, especially in today's volatile economic environment, education budgets are viewed as more of a burden to the overall government budget rather than an important investment in tomorrow's leaders. As a result, programs in early childhood education continue to be cut more and more due to a lack of funding.
We've all seen the commercials for programs like VH1's Save the Music Foundation, featuring stars like Alicia Keys, Beyonce and LeAnn Rimes preaching about the importance of instrumental music education in public schools.
Those programs are making some incredible h eadway to restore music/arts education in schools across the country from the donations of many Americans. Some school districts, however, are getting more creative. California's Firebaugh-Las Deltas Unified School District, for example, has restored music instruction with savings from solar power
installations at three of its five district schools.
