These cover arts and history programs that aren't available locally. Not every school is located within driving distance of museums and cultural centers.
Other things that we get are local cultural programming that would not be covered by commercial television or radio that goes to both the schools and broadcast to the public. That $64Million, spread over 50 states is one of the better deals we get out of our government.
"...'educational' programs that are cabled into the public school systems," like the two half-naked guys in bed together kissing and hugging? Gee aren't we lucky to be able to pay for that "cultural programming!" They are nothing more than mercenary pimps for the very far left! Just like you!!
Don't believe everything you think
