Preserve the arts at MHSA
We, the undersigned, have been indelibly impacted, molded, and shaped by our experiences at and connections with Milwaukee High School of the Arts (MHSA). We implore the Board of Directors to uphold the fundamental tenet of the core arts curriculum- 2 hours of arts instruction daily- that was implemented at the inception of MHSA. The integrity of the curriculum must be preserved and offered to every student at MHSA. The implementation of the arts curriculum must be delivered by adequate certified arts teacher staffing. In light of the budget deficit presented to administration for 2017-2018, this is in jeopardy. We strongly recommend that the Board of Directors exert its full power and influence toward funding this extraordinary institution appropriately so that generations to come will have access to the unique experience arts-based education provides.
