Storyline

An expanded edition of William Peters's classic study of the unique eye-color lesson in prejudice and discrimination taught by Iowa schoolteacher Jane Elliott. This new edition continues the story of Elliott and her sixteen third-graders of 1970, eleven of whom returned to their hometown in 1984 for a reunion with their former teacher. Peters reports on that meeting and its evidence that the long-ago lesson has had a profound and enduring effect on the students' lives and attitudes. Written by Anonymous

Excellent film for teachers and trainers and for everybody actually
12 November 2005 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This movie has been an inspiration for me and many more, to do something in the fight against discrimination. And this is big considering I am male, Caucasian, I belong to the majority nation, I am heterosexual... I belong to the dominant group and yet I was really moved by the idea of the movie, moved toward action! I really recommend this movie to everybody, from young pupils to teachers, parents, politicians, minority groups, everybody! I really want to thank Jane Elliott for her efforts and even though I don't have her agreement yet, I hope I can use this movie in the Romanian schools for the promotion of tolerance, understanding and respect for the minorities.
