Funding for Arts Education sign now

To: Mayor Adrian Fenty and DC Representatives Eleanor Holmes Norton and Paul Broun

or Adrian Fenty claimed that he fully supported DC students and teachers, pledging to deliver the best possible educations to the children. Now, funding FOR education especially for the arts programs is being slashed at much greater levels than anticipated, leaving schools wounded and scrambling to make up for the loss. More money is being put in to charter schools rather than focusing on the need of the underprivledged public schools. Teachers are being cut and classes are increasing in size while supplies and instructers are limited.

The arts is of great importance and funding for fields trips, art supplies and programs is very limited. These prorgrams are fundamental for the youth
as it is just as important as english and math. It helps create a well rounded students and is also a therapeutic outlet for the youth.

Education funding was supposed to be a top priority. There have been many cuts for tax reform and it is hurting our youth the next generation to run this country. To be honest: the amount of money the average tax payer will save will be negligible, just enough to buy some silly, pointless object at Walmart. Is that all we are worth? Is that all it takes to buy us?

Open your eyes! We, the students, are the ones directly affected. We are the next generation of thinkers, the next job holders, the future leaders, and the future voters. Now we are taking a stand. These cuts are nothing but harmful to our education, and are certainly not aiding the schools in providing each student with a limitless future.

We, the undersigned, demand that funding to schools be restored before the damage already done becomes a permanent scar on a generation of students.

Its time for change,. Times may be tough, but this is NOT the solution.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned
