International Scan: Hip-Hop Education Across the Globe

The purpose of this survey is to continue where we left off with the Hip-Hop Education National Scan completed in November of 2011. We are counting and documenting the various international educational efforts that are working to engage and respond to the needs of youth in-and-out of the classroom utilizing Hip-Hop-based education. A key objective is to identify those schools, organizations, and programs which are intentionally serving youth, especially in low- income and chronically violent communities – in order to inform practitioners, policymakers, and funders to better target resources, improve outcomes, and scale and/or replicate best models and practices.

Re-Imagining Teaching and Learning: A Snapshot of Hip-Hop Education

This report explains the findings of a 2010-2011 national online census of Hip-Hop Education courses and programs as they relate to the current developmental state of the Hip-Hop Education field. The research was conducted by the Hip-Hop Education Center in collaboration with the Metropolitan Center at the Steinhardt School for Education, Culture, and Human Development, with a seed grant from the Nathan Cummings Foundation. The census was designed to increase the understanding of the courses and programs that exist to support the professional and economic development of the field of Hip-Hop Education.
