School of Rock: Can rappers save education?

I previously wrote on how rappers can save the economy, now it seems that the School of Rock has entered the classroom. Check this BBC programme out, which shows just how effective education can be when it borrows accelerated learning strategies from the School of Rock:

Can Rappers save Education?

Education works when our minds, bodies and souls are fully engaged, as some primary school kids found out when we ran a School of Rock event with the BBC, to help them succeed in exams.

The headteacher said that as well as significantly improving relationships in the classroom, the event made an impact on borderline children in terms of their ability to succeed in their exams.

So whether it’s rap, rock, jazz fusion or hip hop, the message is, “cut the crap and start the rap if you want to get on up in life or business”.
