Doctor Mayo: the special classes of art, music, physical education, and library have always been essential to a well-rounded elementary school curriculum in the ASD-- like they still are in the Parkland School District. My question is a two-parter, first, what was your thinking in agreeing to cutting back these essential special classes so drastically … and second, what is your plan and what is your timetable for fully restoring art, music, physical education, and library to all ASD elementary schools?
UPDATE: Please read the comments to find out about the meeting. Comment #5 is my post meeting comment.
