PROVIDENCE â Asked about his goals and priorities for the upcoming General Assembly session, one of the first things House Speaker Gordon Fox said is âI donât want to raise taxes.â
CUMBERLAND â There are plenty of good reasons for teaching instrumental music and chorus in secondary schools, and the students enrolled in them are more than happy to share a few.
âOther classes teach independence and therefore cannot compare with band and chorus classes,â says Kristen Rodriguez of Mount St. Charles Academy in Woonsocket. âIf someone fails an English test and another person receives a perfect score, the person who aced the test is not affected by the person who failed it. Unlike other classes, band and chorus teach the value of interdependence.â
