In reading the May 15th article in the Union, one easily could have been left with the impression that the whole of Anoka County was at the board meeting to defend the district’s music program, given the opening, “After public outcry…the…board restored full-time band directors…” This feeling of urgency to defend the music program was reinforced by board member Heidemann’s quote, “if there’s a program at risk and it’s valued…the status quo and …treating it the same as everybody else isn’t the right solution.” Rest assured Mr. Heidemann, you and the board have not treated this music program as “everybody else” and not even close to the status quo.
