Artists take on the education system

One in three students don’t graduate high school, and many of those who do still lack basic skills in reading, math, and science. Saying enough is enough, a group of artists have banded together to create Re:Form School, an exhibit that aims to bring about change by shining a light on the myriad troubles plaguing our school system. Maya Hayuk, Michel Gondry, Deedee Cheriel, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, and FAILE are just a few who will be showing their work alongside the winners of the Re:Form School’s art contest, featuring work selected by judges such as Russell Simmons and Rosario Dawson. The event is presented by the education-reform organization Redu, whose motto is, “Every child deserves a great education.”
