Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are having a teachable moment.

The pop stars are among a group of artists including Pitbull, LMFAO's Redfoo and Jason Mraz joining forces to headline a one-hour TV special paying tribute to educators and stressing the importance of a quality education.

Considering the Biebs' shows in Norway prompted school officials there to reschedule midterm exams, sounds like this is a good cause to support!

Also participating in the program, titled The Real Change Project: Artists for Education, will be legendary producer and jazzman, Quincy Jones, and Glee star Matthew Morrison.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, the show will feature musical performances, interviews and segments with the artists as they return to their hometown schools to talk with the teachers who had a profound impact on them as well as surprise students.

They'll also sponsor classrooms as part of the charitable endeavor, which advocates improved resources for the nation's educational system.

"The goal of our show is to not only honor these teachers, but to also inspire Americans to adopt a classroom and support those who are shaping the minds of tomorrow by providing the supplies that enable them to keep making a difference today," Real Change Productions head Liam Murphy told the trade.

The special is set to air on April 23 at 7 p.m. on CBS—two weeks ahead of National Teacher Appreciation Week.
