I can’t think of a more timely re-blog. After you read this post, please ask yourself if Mississippi needs charter schools. And make sure you watch the videos at the bottom. Thanks for reading.
Today I toured the campus of Meridian High School with Principal Victor Hubbard. Here’s what I saw in pictures, video and a few words:

Using state-of-the-art CAD software, this was completely designed from the ground-up by a 9th grade STEM student at Meridian High School(and not just one 9th grader;the wall is full of these). STEM stands for Science Technology Engineering Mathematics. Along with the image, students are required to produce drawings, i.e. blueprints, for the design and production of the given object. Did I mention these are 9th graders?
— This is an example of the “Glue-Watercolor” method being used by 9th graders to produce these fine pieces of artwork.
