School Stories is an on going social impact participatory and investigative doc series spotlighting Education - Journalism, Activism. Opportunity, Access, Equity and other issues. Sponsored by IDA, the longest running 501c3 for film, a library of over 300 hours of personal stories and whistle blower testimonials make up social impact content that has successfully contributed to and galvanized Public Awareness campaigns and legislation initiatives designed to improve our Educational Institutions and the bureaucracy behind the decline of quality Schools. Capturing the struggles of those brave enough to stand up and speak out, School Stories Media is being used for outreach and advocacy across several States; Collaborations and contribution with thought leaders and School Communities have led from School Board transparency and policy to local and state legislative resolutions mostly avoided by Education and ignored by mainstream media.
Producing, partnering and distributing with multiple platforms. Giving voice to Parents, Teachers, and School Communities; Bringing to the table obfuscated and marginalized issues; Promoting success strategies for school boards and communities in need of support; revealing how much citizens and community organizers are as misinformed, mistreated, and maligned as parents and students; Bringing transparency to Districts and States where Parents are outright banned from school board discussions. Asking questions of the century: why is there now consensus in Science but not in 21 Century Education? Are parents, teachers, and students suffering the consequences of the politicalization and medicalization of Education? Are schools more focused on medical diagnosis? Mental Conditions? Gender Affirmative care?
