With increasing educational budget cuts sweeping the nation, arts education is often one of the first programs to get slashed. Just as ‘Glee’ was airing on Fox Tuesday night, the community of Fowlerville, Michigan announced it would be cutting band and art programs due to budget reductions. In steps ‘Glee.’ “I actually heard from a guy who worked I think in the public school system somewhere in Washington state and he was like yes, we’re having tons of problems,” Brennan said. “He was like the one thing no one is touching now is Glee Club, which is such a fascinating blow back from this show.” An elementary school principal in Utah sees ‘Glee’s’ musical message as a way to inspire students to sing, despite the fact that their budget has no place for choir. “It’s a great teaching opportunity to get two songs and mash them together like they do on the show,” the principal told the Salt Lake Tribute. “It would be an awesome thing to find the right parent who could form a glee club and do some modern music.” While most prime-time programming is filled with cookie cutter procedural dramas and a seemingly endless number of ‘Law & Order’ spinoffs, all merely teaching kids how to dispose of a dead body, ‘Glee’ has quickly turned into a show advocating for a positive change in America, even while maintaining its cotton candy sweetness. As President Obama and his family watched the cast of ‘Glee’ perform at the recent White House event, an idea occurred to Falchuck. “I would encourage [the Obamas] to get Congress to mandate it as some kind of a law that everyone in the country has to watch [‘Glee’]. Call it the Glee Reform.” If that Glee Reform called for arts funding in public schools to be increased across the country, it would certainly have my seal of approval.

  1. Captcha is one of the greatest techniques against auto bot registration but xrumer will destory it with is amazing power. One of the most frequent spam behavior is auto account registration on forums e.g Xrumer. These bots intend to post advertising messages without manual control and so so really successfully with xrumer. Tools like Xrumer are dedicated for this purpose. Thus, you may set up captcha against bot registration. Alternatively, setting up anti-spam questions that appear randomly will also be helpful but it real wont work because xrumer is king. Xrumer 🙂

  2. What I want to know is why I should care? I mean, not to say that what youve got to say isnt important, but I mean, its so generic. Everyones talking about this man. Give us something more, something that we can get behind so we can feel as passionately about it as you do.

  3. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
