'The Experiment' - Lunchtime Film Screening

presented in conjunction with the Tulane Reading Project

Date: Friday, November 21, 2014
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Building: Cudd Hall in Room 203
Location: uptown campus

For many who wanted to change the failing school system in New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina provided a blank slate from which to create opportunity out of tragedy. Now the city is at the forefront of what educators nationwide have dubbed “the great experiment.” Following five children as they navigate a shifting educational landscape, and filmed principally on location, The Experiment places the current transformation of the city’s public schools at the forefront of a broader national debate through the eyes of those it affects most - questioning if this is a “great experiment” or “privatization.” And are these changes ultimately in the best interests of the children of New Orleans? (2011, 88 min.)

Lunch will be served, and space is limited. To attend, please RSVP to donuts@tulane.edu by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 19.
