Premier Alison Redford, Alberta MLAs, and the Edmonton Public School Board: Continue the Music Enrichment Program

As Edmontonians, students and graduates of the Music Enrichment Program, parents, teachers, musicians, and music lovers in Edmonton and beyond, we believe that Edmonton's Music Enrichment Program is an invaluable part of the city's competitive advantage in preparing its young people for full lives and successful careers.

We're asking Premier Alison Redford, Alberta Education, and the Edmonton Public School Board to consider options for keeping this life-changing but relatively inexpensive program alive. To put the financial question in perspective, the province's own budget website forecasts a 2014-15 budget surplus of $5.2 billion--more than twenty thousand times the annual cost of this program.
