Schools Superintendent William Hite,Jr. announced plans to reinstate 300 school based positions immediately.
The 33millions dollars gives life to School Secretaries,Coaches,Referees,& Music Teachers.This is a sigh of relief for those who were laid off in June. But come December2013 these monies for Sports & Music will be exhausted.
As they wait for the State & City Council to help them, they have reached out to Teachers, Staff, & Students about funding priorty.Several weeks ago these people who were laid off staged a week long prayer & fast.Also Students from the School of Performing Arts staged a march in protest of the cuts. I don't know but something good seems to have come from that. Can you say 33million!
Maybe it's time we got more involved from the outside without being taxed, like Business supporting our various sporting activities with equipment & uniforms.& in turn can receive perhaps advertisement, or just feeling good about doing something. All these performing Venues,& clubs,can help support the Arts programs. Builders & Developers ,helping with Blue coller skills. Churches,& places of worship,with Music programs. And let's not forget the Drug dealers, Hustlers, Rappers,& Athletes. Your money spends too.Use some of that money to do good.Instead of a Tattoo or another pair of sneaks,help a child get an EDUCATION. Schools are like jobs these days, it doesn't look good. But we got to start somewhere. So share your thoughts & ideas here & let's keep this train rolling.
Together we can make a difference,and that difference is you! ( Don't forget to buy your Child a belt.)
