Music Education in Jeopardy

Oct 30, 2012

Whether it is learning how to play an instrument or singing in a school choir, music education can be very important in shaping a person’s life.  However, in some states such as Indiana, Colorado, and Ohio, funds for music programs in schools have been cut to reduce the budget of public education.  While there are currently no plans to go through with this in Louisiana, the thought of losing it can upset many people.
