Pharrell Williams, famed producer and musician, will be opening several private schools exclusively for low-income students. Places are available right now online.
Fancy enlisting at a Pharrell funded school?
If you’re from Virginia you may be in luck, as the lauded producer Pharrell Williams has announced the opening of several private schools exclusive to low income families.
The first is named Yellowhab and will be opening in the Ghent neighbourhood near Norfolk, where Pharrell grew up. Students from grades three to five will be able to enlist – and the first year of tuition will be free. Later fees will be paid through donations and charitable giving.
It doesn’t stop there, either.
Pharrell’s education arm of his non-profit organisation, Yellow, plans to open a middle school next year, with additional educational facilities in the surrounding area expected to pop up over the coming years. Education never sounded so good.
