Concerned about the fate of disengaged -- and struggling -- students in England, Josie Maitland, a drama teacher, devised an intervention programme that relies heavily on the arts to reach such students. Called "Inspire," the intervention programme tailors lessons in art, photography, drama and music to meet students' needs. The goal, Maitland writes in this blog post, is to teach students an artistic skill and help them with personal qualities, including developing trust and building relationships.
