Ron Clark Academy Students: ABC News 'Person of the Week'
In response to their election song “Vote However You Like”, the students of Atlanta’s Ron Clark Academy were named the “Person of the Week” by ABC News. The students’ song, a politically neutral parody of the hit “Whatever You Like” by rapper T.I., became an internet sensation in the weeks leading up to the general election.
The Ron Clark Academy was founded in September 2007 by its namesake, who was named Disney’s American Teacher of the Year in 2000. Clark regularly speaks with education groups including education majors about ways to improve test scores, inspire students and revolutionize the classroom.
