In your comments, please reflect on the following while comparing the Native Son video and the Heifer Project Video:

~What was alike and/or different about the two groups profiled? 
~What seemed to be the differences in the factors that kept people included or excluded in the educational process?  
~What were their obstacles to education?  
~Why was (or is one) more successful while the other isn't/ wasn't?

Who is dropping out of school in the United States and why?  How does this video change some of your assumptions about the challenges that face different parts of the U.S. population?

Please add both of your two BIG (and great) ideas in the comment section below.  
Please make sure that they are fully fleshed out ideas that  directly affect our issue of spreading education to all. They should be long lasting (not a one time event or fix) and be "outcome focussed."

Fay's Challenge 20/20 team kicked off the year with a discussion of the recent shooting of Pakistani student activist, Malala Yousufzai.  Using Malala's case, we sought to learn what her case means in the context of 'education for all.' We followed our discussion with a viewing of a video from United Nations Education Envoy, Gordon Brown, and working to establish an understanding of UNESCO's Education for All goals.
