Edit Cast Cast overview: William Makozak Alumni often comment that the process of researching and writing about an issue that mattered to them had a lasting impact.
Many alumni find themselves still involved in the issues that they wrote about in high school. At school assemblies, I would often appeal for students to become more than stellar artists or scholars. I wanted graduates who would sit on the boards of our local museums, symphony orchestras, and other arts and community organizations.
Yes, it mattered whether students went on to college and successful careers in the arts. But more important was their ability to play a role in shaping a better community. That goal is what our senior grant project underscored. The Coalition of Essential Schools principle demonstration of mastery emphasizes that students should present "exhibitions" that demonstrate their readiness for graduation.
Boston Arts Academy students demonstrate their strengths in a series of exhibitions, reviews, and critiques in both academic and arts classes. Each of these assessments has an audience of peers, parents and caregivers, professionals, and other staff to give feedback that helps our students deepen their grasp of concepts. As I think about how to improve schools, I keep returning to the Coalition of Essential Schools' 10th principle, democracy and equity , which states that schools should model democratic practices that involve everyone.
This principle requires putting actual stakes in the ground—deciding who is responsible for what.
You can't just float through the days or the years. If we want kids to participate in a democratic society, then we have to teach them how to participate—and give them lots of opportunities to do so. Every school year at Boston Arts Academy begins with a rigorous interrogation of how the school lives its mission. What does it mean to all stakeholders and why? How do we teach this mission statement?
What does the word diverse mean to all of us? What about democratic society? For example, students observe the site manager custodian of the school being involved as a member of the community as opposed to being relegated to support staff. Students who see the janitor or custodian participate in a panel discussion or an assembly are getting a meaningful lesson about overcoming class divides.
When students see adults debating about their differences of opinion regarding curriculum or policies, then the students will recognize that these are issues of consequence.

Anne Clark, Boston Arts Academy's headmaster, observes,. I think a leader's role is to keep focused on questions. The mistake is to impose an answer. If you always say, "Now we are doing this," you will get compliance, but that works only for a short time. You should do your work to build consensus.
If someone has a better idea, I'll cede my idea. You have to be willing to have your ideas shot down. Anne also believes that creating a great school involves supporting the ability of students to execute their ideas. She recalls that students wanted to institute a discipline process called restorative justice. Students felt that they needed to figure out ways to hold one another more accountable for their behavior.

It took time to convince and then train all the faculty in this new method, which focuses on owning behaviors instead of on punishment, but Anne is convinced that it was worth the effort. Does having a sense of control in one's own schooling matter to young people? Eighty percent of the students who start with us as freshmen graduate in four years as seniors—one of the highest rates in Boston's public schools.
Of that graduating group, 94 percent either go on to college; go directly into careers in the arts for example, to dance companies ; or enter the military. In a study of Boston Arts Academy alumni from to , we found that 64 percent were still in college or had already finished.
