Arts to the Rescue!!!
Just had to share this inspiring story of how a fine and performing arts program turned around a violent and struggling school...
“There's no one particular way of doing something,” eighth grader Keyvaughn Little said. “And art helps you, like, see that. So if you take that with you, and bring it on, it will actually help you see that in academics or anything else, there's not one specific way you have to do something.”
THIS!!!!!!! THIS is a lifelong skill, one that will matter long after standardized tests are over. Hooray for his principal!!!
P.S. Keyvaughn has been accepted to the competitive Boston Arts Academy, the city's only public high school specializing in visual and performing arts. :-)
