South L.A.'s "Hip-Hop High School" Closed Due To Budget Cuts

The Global Awareness Through Hop Hop Culture Program, L.A.'s rap-centric answer to Fame, has been shuttered, due to overwhelming budget problems in California. The program got a lot of publicity when it launched in 2006, since it was one of the first courses to teach hip-hop at the high school level, and has since then been run through Accelerated Charter School, and had guest instructors like KRS-One. It's yet another arts program shut down, which should send pangs of worry through arts educators everywhere. [LA Times]
