This study by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) demonstrates with statistically reliable data that "arts participation overwhelmingly correlates with positive individual and civic behaviors."

See Freedom Writers for Free!!!

Teacher Appreciation Week at AMC Theaters

Teachers across the nation have the opportunity to see "Freedom Writers" for free from Friday, January 26 - Thursday, February 1, courtesy of AMC and Paramount Pictures. This is the inspirational true story of Erin Gruwell, the Long Beach teacher who turned her students' violent lives around by asking them to keep journals, inspired by reading The Diary of Ann Frank, teaching them to pick up a pen instead of a gun.

Take advantage of this great offer and get inspired!
