Screening & Discussion: “I’m Smart, Too”
January 23, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
School districts across the country agonize over racial achievement gaps that remain a staunch reality despite countless programs and initiatives.
I’m Smart, Too takes a look at one public school system, Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools (CHCCS), to examine how the practice of sorting and tracking school children, starting in the earliest grades, creates insurmountable disparities in educational opportunities while also shaping all students’ perceptions of capability and worth.
In this short documentary, the voices of educational experts, students, and parents sound an alarm about the tremendous damage we do when we squander students’ potential and the promise of our public education system.
