Screening of 'Class Dismissed', The Learning Cooperatives
The Learning Cooperatives will host a free screening of Class Dismissed on Monday, July 20th at 7pm.
From the film makers: "Frustrated with the traditional school system, a family in Los Angeles pulls their two children out of one of the highest-rated schools in the area and takes their education into their own hands. In the quest to better their children’s lives, they must overcome long-standing assumptions about education and face the social ramifications of their bold decision.
Class Dismissed will challenge viewers to take a fresh look at what it means to be educated in the 21st century and offer up a new way of thinking about the process of learning."
Following the screening, you're invited to stay for a discussion of the topics raised in the film.
