50 Cent is back to putting his entrepreneurship skills to a noble cause. Dreamschool is a new reality show on Sundance channel, executive produced by Jamie Oliver and Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson which aims to encourage High School dropouts to get them to graduate from a real, accredited high school by reigniting their passions towards studies.
The 15 teenagers from the Los Angeles area who appear in the designed “dream school” dropped out of high school because of issues including fighting, financial problems and pregnancy. One transgender student said bullying forced him out of school and another didn’t enter the ninth grade because he wanted to care for his cancer-stricken mother.
Dream School is a six-part series which also features other celebrities like Jesse Jackson, journalist Soledad O’Brien, astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison and Swizz Beatz. You can watch the first episode which debuted last night, after the break.
