We did it!
Congrats everyone for pulling together in tremendous fashion, and showing great support for music, and the fine arts. I am currently working on a cover letter, and how to get the petition to the right people. I will keep everyone updated as this process is ongoing. I feel it is important to get the petition in soon, so that we are more likely to get things done.
Thanks to everyone who follows SAVESCHOOLMUSIC!, as well as MENC for helping get things started way back when,and Causes for all the support they have given.
And thank you.
