F R I D A Y: SCHOOLING THE WORLD (Screening)

P.U.R.C. presents… SCHOOLING THE WORLD, a Live Movie Screening at the P H A R M A C Y happening FRIDAY AUGUST 14

The Philadelphia Urban Roots Collective, is calling all educators, artists, activists, and community leaders to an exclusive invitation only film screening and panel discussion of the film “Schooling the World-The White Man’s Burden”

August 14, 2015 at 7pm

If you wanted to change a culture in a generation, how would you do it?

You would change the way it educates its children.

Today, volunteers build schools in traditional societies around the world, convinced that school is the only way to a ‘better’ life for rural and Indigenous children.

But is this true? What really happens when we replace another culture’s canon of knowledge with our own? Does life really get better for its people?

SCHOOLING THE WORLD takes a challenging, sometimes funny, ultimately deeply troubling look at the role played by modern education in the destruction of the world’s last sustainable land-based culture.
