I have been inspired by people who have taken on the challenge of sharing the American school experience through photography and documentary film. The most recent one I watched was Waiting for Superman. It was powerful. It made me cry. It made me want to DO SOMETHING, but it left me thinking, “that’s only part of the story.” I really appreciate their Take Action Checklist.
There are two new Educational documentaries coming in 2012, as reported by Esther Wojcicki. I’d also like to watch this one – School: The Story of American Public Education. USA Today wrote an article about the 4 big Educational documentaries of 2010. I’m sure there are many more worth watching & welcome your suggestions.
A colleague and I would really like to build a diverse team to develop a more comprehensive visual report, either in print or through video…maybe both. If you’re interested, let me know.
