Media: School-Related Tidbits From Sunday's Oscars Telecast

image from a.scpr.orgThe red bracelet on "12 Years A Slave" director Steve McQueen's right write was a shout-out to the NSBA, reports the Washington Post's Valerie Strauss.

As you may recall, McQueen and the NSBA and Montel Williams among others have arranged to have the movie brought into high schools around the nation.

In other Oscars-related education news, the students from Hamilton High School who got to perform the song "Happy" with Pharrell Williams are pretty excited about the experience, according to SCPR.


It's a magnet school that's part of LAUSD whose expulsion rates and SPED services percentages are unknown.

The students did have to try out for the experience, and were prohibited from posting anything about it on social media ahead of the broadcast.

Hamilton (my husband's, sister-in-law's and nephew's alma mater) is a longtime, large traditional high school with an arts magnet school within. An alumni who's an entertainment industry mogul, Norman Pattiz, has been the benefactor of the arts magnet.

Sorry -- an alumnus.
