FROM 2019: Beth is a mom of two grappling with race, parenting and her own privilege in America. Looking back over the past year, we follow Beth as she learns how the choices she makes for her daughters’ schooling shapes how she lives in her city… where she belongs, who she calls “WE.”
Part 5 finds Beth starting her second year at the school across the interstate. Meanwhile, her district, like many across the country, is in the midst of some upheaval – declining enrollment, school closures, consolidation. Being a part of the new school community has allowed Beth a different vantage point through which to understand it all…
Special thanks to Beth, Nadia and Maya for being so honest, open and vulnerable, and then allowing us to share that with the world.
PLUS - reflections from Val and Andrew from 2022 about the entire series, what we learned, and how it relates to Integrated Schools today.
