PHARRELL WILLIAMS IS OPENING PRIVATE SCHOOLS FOR LOW INCOME FAMILIES

Pharrell has been making music for decades and now hes creating opportunities for low income families to get a private school education. The school will be called Yellowhab, a  tuition-free private school that will enroll anywhere between 40-50 students between third and fifth grade and is set to open in the fall of 2021.  

According to a news release: The micro-school, opening this fall in an as-yet undisclosed location, will offer “highly personalized education that knits together transformative learning opportunities at school, at home, online and in the community,”. Students will be picked through a lottery, and the plan is to eventually open more schools.

There will be an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, art and math — or STEAM. The idea for the school is an outgrowth of STEAM-focused summer camps that Williams started in 2008,.

In a press release Pharrell said “If the system is fixed and unfair, then it needs to be broken, “We don’t want lockstep learning where so many kids fall behind; we want bespoke learning designed for each child, where the things that make a child different are the same things that will make a child rise up and take flight.”
