Keep Music In Laporte
On Monday April 9th 2018 the Laporte School Board voted to get rid of music altogether. There was no discussion about this beforehand with faculty, students or parents. There was no attempt to gather opinions from the community or to discuss other options.
I believe I am in the majority when I say there has been a grave miss calculation as to the importance of having a music program in the school.
Music has been statistically proven to promote and improve language, reasoning, memorization, coordination, emotional development, pattern recognition, auditory skills, imagination, intellectual curiosity, discipline, spatial intelligence, creative thinking and teamwork skills. Students who are involved in music also statistically score higher on their SAT.
In my opinion, removing music from the school does a tremendous disservice to the students and the other members of this community. If you agree that music should stay in the school please show your support in an attempt to reverse this decision by signing this petition
