Rumors of educational cuts in arts and music because of economic hard times has hit home in Bledsoe County. Recently on the school’s Facebook page, it was announced that because of a decrease in student enrollment in the county, state funding dropped considerably forcing the Board of Education to eliminate some teaching positions at area schools along with eliminating the band program at Bledsoe County High School. They say that the school will continue to offer other musical programs such as concert choir and musical history and that the elimination of the band program and teaching positions was a difficult decision made only after consideration of the Board’s obligation to provide the best possible education to all 1,600 plus students in our system.
