This video questions why people leave school or fail to graduate. Rather than focusing on the more commonly held idea of "drop outs," the video examines the trends of push-outs, and the many ways that young people feel discouraged by the educational system. Interviewing educational researchers, students, and each other, we try to present the stories behind the statistics.
Thank You For a Memorable Evening!
Thank YOU for making G.A.P.’s 2015 End of Year Screening such a memorable evening!
On Tuesday night, over 200 of Global Action Project's closest friends, family, community partners, and supporters came together to celebrate the power of young people making high-impact social justice media. Our amazing Co-MC’s for the night, Giselle Bleuz and Rene Gonzalez, took us on a journey filled with song, dance, and interactive multimedia as we premiered four new youth-produced films including collaborations with Streetwise & Safe and DRUM. This years films interrogated urgent issues such as police violence, surveillance of Muslim communities, the criminalization of LGBTQ youth and the importance of creating alternatives to punitive school suspension policies… and did we mention SupaFriends’ brilliant remake of Mean Girls?
For those of you who missed this years event, we will be releasing the full versions of all 2015 films on our website and on social media soon, please stay tuned and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more updates!
