One in three students dont 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 Schools 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.
