Thread Name: Folk Music Dying?
Subject: RE: Folk Music Dying?
There was virtually no music program at my school in the 1960's. I didn't learn these songs in school then. Most I learned in scouts or church. Other places I learned them were Kaptain Kangroo, Romper Room.

Why is it that if we see a problem it's the schools' fault? If there's a common culture that's important, why are childern not meeting with this culture outside of the classroom?
