UNEQUAL EDUCATION REVISITED

In 1992, EVC’s youth team produced Unequal Education for national PBS Series, “Listening to America 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.

Following its release, EVC screened Unequal Education Revisitedat the Media and Social Change Lab at Teachers College, Columbia University. Video interviews with Maxine Greene, Deborah Meier, Pedro Noguera, and Norm Fruchter were also shown to open discussion with the audience.
