TEACHED Volume I features the first three films of the innovative TEACHED short film series: The Path to Prison, The Blame Game: Teachers Speak Out and Unchartered Territory. Each film addresses topical issues around the American education system, especially those affecting urban youth. The TEACHED Vol. I compilation—the first in a planned series—is intended to break through polarized education debates, provoke thoughtful discussion and motivate change around long-standing race and income-based inequities in our public schools.
TEACHED Vol. I won Best Documentary Short Film at the Williamsburg Film Festival and a jury prize for "Spirit of Independence" at the Amsterdam Film Festival. It has received acclaim in the Harvard Political Review, USAToday, One Day and other media (see our NEWS section) and was named one of Ten Education Documentaries Not to be Missed by TakePart. TEACHED Vol. II is now in production.
