Storyline

On the eve of the 60th anniversary of the 1957 Little Rock school desegregation crisis, educational inequality remains among the most urgent civil rights issues of our time. With its school district hanging in the balance following a state takeover in January 2015, Little Rock today presents a microcosm of the inequities and challenges manifesting in classrooms all across America. Through case studies in Little Rock, New York City, and Los Angeles, Teach Us All seeks to bring the critical lessons of history to bear on the current state of U.S. education and investigate: 60 years later, how far have we come-or not come-and how do we catalyze action from here?

A heartbreaking look at an American as segregated as ever
29 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Teach Us All is timed with the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock nine desegregating a school in Little Rock. For those not up on their history the film begins with this mini history lesson, explaining why this act of desegregation was so essential.

The film covers a pretty depressing subject, the fact that American schools have become as segregated as they were before the mass desegregation efforts of the civil rights movements in the 60s. In a series of talking heads the film interview activists, students and teachers. It's well constructed and easy to watch and covers a lot of ground.

The documentary is made pretty conventionally, a series of talking heads. Still, it's worth watching as an introduction to the education crisis.
