We are going to see more and more of this kind of thing. A worthy program that there just isn't money for anymore. I would propose that the kids do just what I did when we were informed that there would be no funds for our senior trip.
We sold snacks at lunch- made pizzas and sold them by the slice, car washes, all kinds of things. It was easy. (and actually a ridiculous amount of fun.) Why not have kids help pay for the programs?

How do you want the kids from a poorer area to raise money to have dual enrolment? That is a great program that allows bright kids to get a start in college for free. That isn't whining. This is an important program, and important to our whole society that these kids have a chance at college. People should be angry about this and speaking out, those people shouldn't be called whiners, but concerned citizens.

This is state level...And there's plenty of waste there, too. I just valued my trip so much more because I worked for it. plus it was my idea.
I agree that you should do what you can to raise your own monney. But leaving poor people out of college does nothing to help our city / state / country
