Here's to the Students! Our New Video

A couple of months ago I shared some scripts for some video spots to build interest and awareness for the Save Our Schools March in Washington, DC, this summer. I asked readers to share images, and then I worked with talented film makers Tom and Amy Valens, who created the wonderful documentary August to June.

They put some of the photos we gathered together with some of their video footage, and have thus far produced two wonderful videos, narrated by actor Jim Griffiths.

Today we are sharing the second video, Here's to the Students!
Please share it far and wide.

And here is our first video, released a week ago in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week:

And by the way, we still need some more photos and/or video footage. We need an image of parents or grandparents together with teachers, and images of tough schools in need of repair, and of community members pitching in to fix up their schools. Please email them to me at [email protected]

What do you think of our videos so far?
