Itinerant music programs are on the chopping block

The Toronto District School Board is slashing the Itinerant Music Program ( Band, Strings,  Vocal, Recorder, Steel Pan Drums) before the Trustees are informed or able to vote on this drastic change of policy. 

To save a small portion of their budget, they are planning to drastically reduce the quality of music education for students by laying off the expert music educators. It's outrageous and shortsighted. Study and after study show the benefits of music to our development, our ability to learn, and our quality of life.

Earl Beatty uses these programs each year, and we will miss them terribly if they are taken away!

It only takes a minute to sign the petition below, and your support will make a difference.
Please share with all your parent friends in the TDSB!
