Can Hip Hop Save Us? Youth & School Culture

Urban Arts Partnership's Fresh ED Department hosts a SXSWedu Talk on Hip Hop Education and Culturally responsive pedagogy. Regardless of one’s nationality, ethnicity and/or social class, everyone is familiar with, and has knowledge of, hip hop. Yet, hip hop culture, which is youth culture, is stigmatized, marginalized and prohibited from school settings. If youth culture is deemed irrelevant, does that affect their academic achievement and their self worth? Is there a correlation to the high school graduation rate?
