Education, Who Cares?


Sonie, a seventh-grade Youth Media Workshop participant from Jefferson Middle School, chose education as her topic.  She interviewed Joan Murphy, a teacher at Jefferson, twice about her choice to go to vocational high school to learn a skill, and Martel Miller, a high school drop-out whose negative experiences crushed his enthusiasm for education but not learning.  Sonie immigrated from Liberia 10 years ago and her family highly regards education.

She used a FLIP video camera to record her interview, Windows Media Maker to edit it, and a Marantz flash card recorder to record her narration.
