Longtime art history teacher Neil Anstead knew he had a hard sell on his hands when he was picked to launch a special high school program emphasizing the humanities. He had been hearing the bad rap for years: irrelevant stuff about Ancient Greece and Rome, an elitist pursuit for upper-middle-class white students.
