LOS ANGELES — As he offered a routine explanation of corporations in a recent class, high school economics teacher Dan Schlick hardly came across as subversive.
But just by directly talking to students, just by teaching them, Schlick was part of a self-styled staff revolt in the closing days of a Hawthorne, Calif., school nicknamed Hip Hop High.
The teacher "rebellion" against an online-only curriculum marked a final stage at the Academy for Recording Arts, a school that first became known for giving troubled students access to an on-campus recording studio.
