My student teachers appreciated this video clip when I shared it with them. It is now included on my list of class materials. It certainly set the stage for our discussions on social justice in education, the implications of arts education in learning, and what it really means to be a teacher. It is timely and powerful. It can be used as a discussion starter for educators or trigger individual research or investigations.
