School Culture Matters

August 8, 2012 | 9:53

What is school culture? It's the driving force behind education. It's critical to the success of a school. It's shared beliefs and priorities, driving the thinking and actions of people within a school community. This includes teachers, administrators, staff, students, and parents.

In the summer of 2012, 30 high school students, from all over Chicago, came together to learn how they can influence school culture - not waiting on school administrators or staff. They developed an educational curriculum that teachers can implement in class, and video testimonials to enhance lessons. This documentary is a reflection of that process.
