I disagree. The programs ARE impacted by this theft. My son is in Photography class and they now only have 5 cameras for 25+ students (per multiple class periods). Other than the 5 digital cameras not stolen, they have some 35mm film cameras which then requires dark room time as well. The loss of 14 cameras means they have less time for photo shoots which are generally done during school hours.
