Hogwarts – Inspired Middle School in the Heart of Atlanta






Tom’s Comments:


Please, Please, Please, look at this relevant video. There is LOTS MORE going on, that directly benefits his students, than the surface dance video.

Talk about empowering students with real world, relevant, student success outcomes.

Let’s replicate and scale his methodology to empower more students.

Kudos to Ron and his students

Kudos, also to Ted Fujimoto for scaling student success outcomes with his Landmark Consulting Group,  New Tech Network , Big Picture Learning, and the nonprofit Right to Succeed Foundation.

Innovative educator Ron Clark inspires passion for learning

Hogwarts-inspired Middle School in the Heart of Atlanta

Ron Clark has been going viral for longer than that term has been around.

The Atlanta-based educator, who has an eponymous academy in the Georgia capitol, first came to the Internet’s attention in 2008, when his students put together a “Rock the Vote”-style video called “You Can Vote However You Like,” set to the tune of T.I.’s “Whatever You Like.”

Clark’s at it again this week: A video of him dancing alongside his students that was posted on Sunday has already notched over 2.5 million views on Facebook.

Clark, who won the National Teacher of the Year award for his work in a Harlem, New York, school, operates the private, non-profit Ron Clark Academy from a 50,000-square-foot warehouse in South Atlanta. The school teaches kids grades five through eight, who must adhere to 55 rules, including shaking hands, maintaining eye contact and answering questions in complete sentences. (They also have to be “slide-certified,” in case you think it’s all work and no play at the RCA.)
