Dr Dre and Jimmy Lovine just received an authorization from the L.A Board of education to build a public high school in Los Angeles targeting the poor and low income families in L.A including the marginalized Black and Latino families. During an interview with Los AngelesTimes, Dr Dre expressed his excitement to kick off the construction which he said will help the younger version of him. He claims to have come from a humble background where he experienced difficulties in accessing basic education. The School is meant to eliminate suffering for students and parents under his former circumstances.
Dr Dre said the High school will help students from low income families to access affordable education. He further explained, “Here’s a place that you can go where there’s something that you can learn that you’re really interested in, that guy that didn’t have an opportunity, that had to scratch and figure out things on his own.””
The coolest high School in Los Angeles is expected to be constructed in Southern Los Angeles by Fall of 2022 when is supposed to admit the first student. The two also clarified the doubt that the School will be majorly focusing on Music but suggested that it is a public school expected to follow the public school’s curriculum like the rest. Lavine claimed the school will welcome students from the public who would want to pursue their careers and professionals. He clarified that it is a normal school like any other following the normal high school calendar and activities.
The two explained that the school is most needed by the poor and vulnerable in L.A surrounded by expensive private schools they can barely afford. They also expressed their concerns that it will not be easy to achieve the dream but also affirmed that they are ready for the challenge.
Away from that, Dr Dre also commented on his health where he said he was feeling fantastic after suffering a brain aneurysm early this year. He was rushed to Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in L.A where he was admitted for more than a week after receiving emergency care. The bleeding in his brain was threatening his life if it wasn’t immediately stop
