From a reader: "What is going on with the new CPS arts team. David Roche has been there for over a year and has, to my knowledge, not done anything except go to some events and give the same speech. The other thing I've heard is that he took his staff to Venezuela to study the Carlos Chavez-developed music program. A week in venezuela? I struggle to get instruments and supplies for my school and he's in venezuela? Also, I heard they were in new york to look at the Lincoln Center Institute? Why? These seem like huge indulgences when we here at schools haven't heard from them or received any resources from them at all."
