Turnaround Arts Program Is Expanding
The Turnaround Arts Initiative, a brainchild of the Obama White House, will expand its efforts to support schools to use arts as part of school improvement efforts.
Arts leaders announced this week that 73 schools serving more than 35,000 students will be part of the program by the start of the 2017-18 school year. The program is adding schools in Providence, R.I., and Richmond, Va., this year.
