Well written and researched, Fiona. A question: when you say "arts and culture programs" in the same graf as "arts and music programming in elementary schools," are you using these terms interchangeably? Is there a separate setaside for "culture" education in the measure, or is it in fact strictly for arts and music education?

And if the former, what constitutes "culture?"

It's only $35 but I don't know if I'll ever vote for a flat rate tax out of principle.
