ARTS BASED SCHOOL STUDENTS GET RED CARPET TREATMENT

The red carpet was rolled out Wednesday night at HanesBrands Theater for a movie premiere participants will not soon forget.Students from the Arts Based School descended the theater stairs to a crowd of cheering parents, families and friends, working it for the paparazzi on the way in to watch their documentary films light up the big screen. The Winston-Salem charter school's 28 sixth-graders spent the last three months working on the movies, which were written, directed, shot and acted by the students. Charter schools are public schools that receive state money but are not subject to many of the rules and regulations traditional schools must follow. The intent is to give parents more choice as to where their children are educated and allow new education ideas and models to be tested.
