MS 223: The Power of Arts Education

Here is an inspirational documentary about a New York middle school being transformed through Arts Education.

MS 223, formerly identified as the most dangerous intermediate school in New York City, is undergoing a transformation. With the help of the School Arts Support Initiative, funded by the Center for Arts Education and the New York Times Company Foundation, the arts are taking their place as a basic subject along with English, Math, Science, Social Studies and Technology.
