“Some songs are very profound and give tears to the eye,” said MLK music teacher JoAnne Kucerak. “And others are moving and grooving and just a hoot.” . . .You can't? Why not?
Kucerak said the experience was unbeatable for the students.
“They have learned from three or four directors today and are learning how to adjust the music as they go. You can’t get this in the classroom,” she said.
It's lovely that the children have the opportunity to perform . . . And it was probably a happy, memorable experience for them. But it's not so lovely that they are missing a day of school to do it. This is not the spring recess. These are elementary students, and elementary school is supposed to provide the foundation for education in later years.
It is interesting that this day missed from school was to provide entertainment at an 'education conference.'
The fact that Educators see nothing wrong with this explains why our children can't read or do simple math.
