Screening of EVC’s “Unequal Education Revisited”

Unequal Ed Flyer FINAL

We are thrilled to be hosting the Premiere Screening “Unequal Education Revisited” — an Educational Video Center film with strong thematic connections for those interested in teacher education, media education, literacy, curriculum studies, urban education, and adolescence, among others.

Synopsis:
In 1992, EVC’s youth team produced Unequal Education for the national PBS series, “Listening to American With Bill Moyers.” Their film revealed the stark contrast in resources and opportunities offered to students in two Bronx middle schools – one in a middle-class area and one in a low-income community – in the same district. More than twenty years later, the crew reunited to produce Unequal Education Revisited, bearing witness to the long-term impact that inequities plaguing our society – in education, justice and healthcare – have on those struggling to survive.
During the screening, we will also share reflections on the film from Maxine Greene, Deborah Meier, Pedro Noguera, and others.
