School Learns To Cope Without Art, Music Teachers

School officials said the cuts were tough but necessary because of dwindling enrollment, less state funding and a low-income tax base hit hard by the recession. The move led to blow back from national arts groups, who said kids would miss out on a well-rounded education.
