#11 Wish I Could Go To Reform School With Shepard Fairey

RE:FORM SCHOOL is a high profile group art exhibition, event series and public awareness campaign taking place in New York City, that brings together the creative community in a call for the reform of the American Public Education System.

It is great because it connects great thinkers (the artists) with students which is important because it opens a pathway to teaching kids 21st century skills. 21st century skills are important because life ain’t just about reading writing and rithmetic.
