Oklahoma City finance academy banks on building its arts program
The new art teacher at John Marshall High School has cobbled together community support to buy $10,000 worth of pottery equipment for the school. But her school is known for something besides art — its new finance academy.
Kyla Kaufman teaches art in a school known for math.
She teaches drawing and painting at John Marshall High School, which launched its specialty finance academy this school year. But even students who want to grow up to be bankers and investors need to express themselves, she said.
“The kids need an outlet,” Kaufman said. “It’s therapeutic for them. They’re not worried about everyday life.”
