People In Education in Detroit, Michigan

Winner of the Learn & Grow Award for helping people learn something new – Fall 2017

From the Filmmakers: “The purpose of People In Education’s 360 short film is to document the gravity that relationships have in the context of education and schooling. This film tells a story of human connections as they manifest and grow in a learning environment. The purpose of this depiction is to present the argument that at the heart of any humanizing education is relationships. Staying true to our name, the audience of this short film are people in education. This, of course, refers to students, educators and faculty, parents and community members.”
