Devaluation of Education Affecting Student Concert Attendance?
Date: June 3, 2014
Is anyone else experiencing a huge change in attendance of your singers at school concerts. Attendance by my students and even by my regularly practicing choir members is at an abysmal 33% for the last several events. I have never had this problem before and am worried it is a symptom of a devaluation of education. Teachers have been under attack so severely in Wisconsin that I am starting to believe parents have devalued their student's participation in school events.
Am I crazy? Have your students participated at normal levels this year?
