How about investing in Allentown school children? Don't they deserve the same arts education as Parkland? ASD elementary students see a certified art teacher only 9 times per year due to budget cuts, teacher lay-offs, excessive testing- approved by our school board. The legislators found money to fully restore the arts programs in Upper Darby SD, why not Allentown? If the arts are flourishing in our city, they should also be flourishing in our city schools. Our kids deserve high quality arts taught by certified teachers. Parents, don't look the other way on these inequities. Demand fully funded arts programs and a well rounded curriculum for our children.
