Education Exposed: A 2019 film series to be offered free to students, community
Georgia Southern University College of Education (COE) will offer a series of film screenings in 2019 that will provide valuable insight and critically examine issues that affect the development, success and well-being of youth. All films will begin at 6 p.m. and are free and open to the public.
The screenings will take place on the University’s Armstrong Campus in Savannah and will include question-and-answer sessions following each screening to provide opportunities for engagement and discussion about the educational issue of the film.
The series is being offered at no charge to students or the community as a result of a Campus Life Enrichment Committee grant written and received by COE faculty members Regina Rahimi, Ph.D., Kathleen Burke-Fabrikant, Ph.D., and David Owens, Ph.D.
“The team thought it was an opportunity for us to expose our students, the college and University community, and the local group of educators, families and professionals to critical issues related to education and schools,” Rahimi said. “We are hoping through these efforts to bring members of the community together to begin talk of addressing important social and educational issues facing our community. After each film, there will be a panel of guests representing diverse personal and professional backgrounds.”
The series will feature five films including: “Screenagers” on Jan. 17; “Bully” on Feb. 12; “The Cartel” on March 5; “The School in the Cloud” on March 27; and “Elementary Genocide” on April 16.
