Of some interest, since it concerns visiting Disneyland. Quote:
"Eight of the band's 54 members - a good chunk of them from the brass section - are ineligible to participate in a band trip due to academics or bad behavior.Band teacher Tom Brozene rightly decided to cancel the trip, recognizing that the band's musical integrity - its reason for performing at the invitation-only Magic Music Days at Disneyland - was compromised beyond repair.
However, parents and students protested, saying that the bad behavior and poor grades of a few shouldn't affect students who are eligible to participate.
We sympathize, but disagree.
If members of a sports team play badly, the whole team loses, not just the few members who didn't practice.
And there's little to no sympathy for this argument: "Many students have joined the band just to become eligible for this trip," one band parent said, concluding with remarkable hyperbole that canceling the trip "is nothing short of disaster."
The reason to join the band is to learn about music, not to visit Disneyland."
