Turnaround Arts:
Using the arts to create success in struggling schools.

“Arts education isn’t something we add on after we’ve achieved other priorities like raising test scores and getting kids into college. It’s actually critical for achieving those priorities in the first place. That’s what the Turnaround Arts program is all about.” - First Lady Michelle Obama
