That’s the question a new film, “Go Public,” sets out to answer. The film follows fifty members of the Pasadena Unified School District community over the course of a school day, showing what it’s like to be a student, parent, teacher, custodian, security guard, or principal in an American public school district on a typical day.
Pasadena is a racially and economically diverse community in Southern California with 28 public school campuses. The film shines a light on the dedicated professionals working in the district, as well the opportunities and complexities of public education today.
Before being made into a feature-length film, all 50 of the individual stories that make up the video were made available for viewing online. You can watch the video clips here.
