Provost Academy South Carolina is a state-authorized public online school that is free of charge to residents of South Carolina, and offers high school students the public school choice of an engaging, adaptable and quality online learning experience. Students work toward their regular public high school diploma - recognized by colleges and employers - as they would in a traditional school, but in the convenient, safe environment of their own home through computer-based educational programs.
"We are very excited about our upcoming Back-to-School Bash," said Dr. Darrell Johnson, executive director of Provost Academy South Carolina. "This family friendly event is the perfect opportunity for students to come out and celebrate the pending new year. We have many exciting activities planned, especially the live performance from the very talented Eddie Bush. We look forward to a fun event."
Eddie Bush is a strong supporter of the introduction and presence of music curricula in schools. Recently, Bush teamed up with EdisonLearning, a company aimed at assisting teachers and communities to improve public schools and boost student performance. With Bush's leadership, the company has entered the preliminary stages of designing a music curriculum to be implemented into its schools in the near future.
In addition, Bush, at the request of EdisonLearning, recently wrote and produced a song titled "Power of Youth," which incorporated the eight core values that lie at the heart of the EdisonLearning dream. This song will be available for download on the music page of the Eddie Bush website, www.EddieBush.com, for a limited time.
