How do we know we have a great education system if we never allow or encourage those directly involved to share their experiences?
To conclude one of the courses I was teaching this past spring, I asked my students to make a 60 second video that expressed their feelings about their time in school. Working alongside them, I decided to use the above question to drive my “Exit Portrait” project, where I asked 18 students and 1 teacher to pose for a portrait in a way that reflected their high school experience. Although there are only a small number of portraits, they are quite revealing. You can see the portraits here.
