Rebekah R started this petition to Senator Rick Scott

The arts in many public schools are often overlooked by many other activities such as sports. And don't give much funding to these programs such as theatre and band. There are Seminole County schools trying to provide the best that they can for students with a such a limited, weak budget while other activities get tons of money that isn't always used in a beneficial way. For example, sports teams get tons of money that they can use for things like equipment and uniforms. They however do get lots of money they end up using for unnecessary things like matching hoodies, and t-shirts. Sure matching shirts are cool, but not if you make 5 different versions of them. That money used to make shirts and other unnecessary things could be used to benefit the arts. For example, theatre could use that money to make a decent set and costumes. Or even sound equipment. Band could use it for instrument repairs and transportation for events. And art could use it for new materials. As appreciated as other departments are, the arts aren't as well appreciated and it shows. The quality of production and performance all comes down to this. People don't want to support something that turns out awful, but the people creating don't often have a choice in that. Now that you've finished reading this please consider signing this petition to help get more funding for the arts.
