Rock the schoolroom
Little Kids Rock is bringing music back to school, reports Kate Stringer on The 74.
The non-profit was created by a California elementary teacher, David Wish, whose school had cut music classes. He started an after-school guitar class. “After 15 years, the free program — designed for schools where at least half the students are eligible for free and reduced-price lunch — has taught music to more than a half-million students in 2,300 schools across 25 states,” writes Stringer.
