How does Washington’s education system stack up against other states? Does money really matter? Is early learning the key to improving outcomes for students?
See and hear the faces of our public education system as they comment on these questions in the 2009 documentaryParamount Duty. We'll watch the movie online and hold a live chat as it plays.
Although the movie is a couple of years old, the lessons about our education still apply. The film looks inside the schools of Washington State to document the challenges facing this generation of teachers, students and administrators.
Key leaders of a movement attempt to rescue education from apathy and neglect. Watch Bill Gates Sr., University of Washington President Mark Emmert, and Governor Christine Gregoire try to address the pressing need for social and financial commitment to our future through educational reform.
Paramount Duty is a film by director Peter J. Vogt and LEV co-founder and president Nick Hanauer.
