The NWI Study Council and the
Northwest Indiana Education Service Center
is pleased to provide the showing:
Rise Above the Mark.
It's time to make a difference in public education. Rise Above the Mark is a documentary narrated by Peter Coyote that brings to light the heartbreaking realities of public education.
It's a story of what happens when public education enters the classroom.
Public schools are boxed in by current corporate reforms. Rules and regulations restrict vision, depreciate funding, demoralize teachers, and turn students into test-taking machines, robbing them of time to foster creativity.
Rise Above the Mark focuses on Indiana's struggles with public school reform-the same types of struggles experienced in schools throughout the United States.
Experts Diane Ravtich, Linda Darling-Hammond, Pasi Sahlberg and others discuss how America can make positive changes to provide an exceptional public school system for all children.
Return trust, decision-making, and responsibility to public schools.
