Stand and Deliver


META Performing Arts presents Stand and Deliver at the historic Lincoln Theatre, 712 S 1st St., Mount Vernon 09/29/2017 to 10/14/2017. Stand and Deliver is the real-life story of math teacher Jaime Escalante and his personal mission of challenging his students to rise to their full learning potential. This award-winning, underdog story challenges all of us to reflect on our personal and cultural beliefs about class, ethnicity, education, and our shared American Dream - The pursuit of happiness. And even though Stand and Deliver is now nearly 30 years old, it is just as relevant as ever to the expectations we create for our students, our community, and our nation.
