Funding new Garden of Children series episodes
We've begun a fundraising campaign for new episodes of the Garden of Children series. Please visit the Kickstarter project here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/froebel/garden-of-children-documentary-series-on-education and share the link with others who may be interested.
This project began over 25 years ago. It's still alive due exclusively to the generosity of videographers John Pottenger and Jay Irwin, local parents of young children who took the time to understand the story.
It was parents (through their support of teachers) who built the world's greatest education system in America. But today parents and teachers are being pitted against each other (masks are just the latest theme), much as citizens are being polarized on other issues by those who benefit from it. While political wins/losses seem like sport, our next generation of children are suffering.
I hope you'll support this work and share this project with those who want to see America stop falling in rank of educational quality. We really need some context in order to solve the problem!
