180 Days: Hartsville
Film Screening + Panel Discussion
(60 minutes) This is the latest installment in the Peabody award-winning PBS series 180 Days: A Year Inside An American High School, that looks at school reform from the eyes of teachers, parents, and students. This time, the story is set in an elementary school. The challenges they face is a microcosm of the issues impacting large urban school districts -- from high-stakes testing, to emotional learning, to the growing battle over the Common Core.
A post-film panel with community educators follows. Moderated by Karen Gibbs of MPT. Panelists include author Wes Moore; filmmaker Jacquie Jones; Assistant Superintendent for Instruction of Dorchester County Public Schools Lorenzo Hughes; and Robert Balfanz, a senior research scientist at The Johns Hopkins University.
