Tennessee. Haslam. McIntyre. Knox County School Board. This video is for you.

Yo! Knox County Schools…how about stepping up and doing stuff like this with our students? Lessons? How about hand/eye coordination, team work, rhythm, did I mention team work?, leadership, technical production, composition, self-confidence, and most of all, accomplishment. Did you know that there is a mathematical side to music? And poetry (literature) in the lyrics? I’m sure I missed some.

Do you get any of that out of a standardized test?
