Classroom Comics in the News

The NY Times ran a great article extolling the virtues of using comics in the classroom, followed by an editorial on the same subject. It mentions the Maryland Comic Book Initiative and quotes Francoise Mouly (my hero).

But what really caught my eye was this: In New York City, a group of educators applied to open a new small high school that would be based around a comics theme and named after the creators of Superman; their application was rejected but they plan to try again next year.

Holy moley, what an awesome idea!
