NISCE to Host Documentary Film Series on Education
The National Institute of Student-Centered Education (NISCE), along with Schools for Children, Inc. (SFC), is proud to host a Documentary Film Series on Education for the 2013- 2014 Academic Year.
Following the success of previously hosted film screenings – Race to Nowhere in 2010 and Bully in 2012 – NISCE and SFC are expanding our film screenings and bringing to you five critically acclaimed films about education in America.
The 2013-2014 Film Series, geared towards a wide range of audiences, will present several different perspectives on education. The films show the complexities of teaching our children in ways that are meaningful and engaging and will cover a wide range of issues that impact our ability to individualize our teaching — from standardized-testing, to race and class, to mental health, to socioeconomic backgrounds and to teacher evaluations.
The films were chosen to provoke discussion and generate thinking about current models of k-12 education. Through the series we hope to explore different ways of approaching and thinking about education—education that engages our students in ways that are creative, compassionate, fulfilling and empowering. At the end of each film we will dedicate time for reflection and discussion, and have partnered with several outstanding professionals and organizations to lead the exploration of messages reflected in each film.
Join us for one, a few, or all four of our films—either way we are sure that you will be encouraged to look at education in a new way.
