The Way We See It: Youth Speak Out on Education


A collection of 15 documentary shorts produced by the Listen Up! Youth Media Network, a division of Learning Matters, Inc. (New York, NY). Young people across the country seek to answer two simple questions on education reform: “What makes a school worth going to?” and “What makes a teacher worth listening to?”

Screened on PBS, the Annenberg Channel, and at Teachers College of Columbia University. Funded by the MetLife Foundation.
