FROM THE ARTIST:
I'm not Michelle Pfeiffer in Dangerous Minds. Welcome to Community College. From LA to Brooklyn, meet my real students as I teach them in 12 weeks what they should have learned in the past 12 years. You won't be quizzed.
See it if You want to experience a perfectly nuanced delivery. You like stories about teachers finding themselves at the same time as their students.
Don't see it if You want to explore the social/political impact of systems-bias in this country and how that relates to college access.
See it if to explore remedial education against overwhelming odds faced by the poor and marginalized; if the occasional success story inspires you.
Don't see it if you're too suspicious of a white woman's take on problems of people of color and of recent immigrants...oh, see it anyway.
See it if you want to know how a teacher feels about teaching at a Community College, diversity of students teaches the teacher as well as vice versa
Don't see it if one person shows make you hesitant- (don't be this is a solid one)
See it if you enjoy shows about life journeys or just want to learn something about a continuing issue in education
Don't see it if I can't think of a reason not to see it--unless you absolutely have not interest in the subject matter.
