Star Tribune: Minnesota chosen for Turnaround Arts program

Graydon Royce writes for the Star Tribune: Minnesota chosen for Turnaround Arts program.
Minnesota is one of three states chosen for the next phase of Turnaround Arts, a national initiative that uses the arts to improve student performance.
The Perpich Center for Arts Education in Golden Valley will direct the two-year program, with funding from the State Arts Board and the Minnesota Legislature.
Of course, Perpich has also just received authority to run Crosswinds on a permanent basis.
Wow!! This is some big news.  I can't wait to see what this will look like for our state.  What an amazing opportunity for something I'm so passionate about... The ARTS!
