Feel Good Again About Public Schools

Susan Notes:

Join the revolution. Buy this film for $24.95 and show it at the next school board meeting. The revolution starts with YOU and your local school board. We need to say "No!" to corporate America and the politicos in Washington, D. C. The best way to do this is to say "YES!" to local kids and their teachers.

by Susan Ohanian

Lessons from the Real World is an hour-long film your local board of education, PTA, and teachers should watch. It shows what school can be. Should be.

Every member of Congress should be required to watch this film.

This film shows what happens when schools open up the curriculum instead of narrowing it; it shows what happens when students of all ages and backgrounds learn from their community instead of spending their time at their desks filling in worksheets.

Call the curriculum shown in this film constructivist; call it progressive. I call it sane and necessary.

This is the story of teachers and students in Portland, Oregon. We need to spread the word about their joyful story.

Join the revolution. Buy this film for $24.95 and show it at the next school board meeting. The revolution starts with YOU and your local school board. We need to say "No!" to corporate America and the politicos in Washington, D. C. The best way to do this is to say "YES!" to local kids and their teachers.
