Rhode Island PBS, in partnership with Learning401, is one of ten recipients nationwide of the “180 Days Hartsville” community engagement grant, a civic engagement campaign to spark powerful conversations on community involvement in education.
Here’s the teaser: [insert video clip - http://video.pbs.org/video/2365401829/]
The aim of this conversation: to shine the light (and camera) on RI solutions for keeping students in school, bringing educators, families, and community members together to explore methods for instilling confidence in every child that the American dream is attainable.
We’re making a national conversation and documentary the springboard for an even more powerful local conversation. It starts this Sunday on #edchatRI and extends into our in-person community “INNOVATION SHARE” on March 23rd. [This in-person gathering is a free event, OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, however seating is limited, so please REGISTER.]
The two-part “180 Days Hartsville” documentary airs on Rhode Island PBS on March 26 (8p & 9p). Also check out this recent Washington Postarticle about the documentary authored by one of its producers, Learning401 advisor, Sam Chaltain.
