Revival from the Roots: A Tour of Philly's Neighborhood Schools

Philadelphia's public schools are reeling from years of underfunding, devastating budget cuts and the mass closure of 23 schools last year.

Over this past spring, Media Mobilizing Project produced a fantastic video series highlighting the dedicated educators, parents and community members who are working to improve their schools and continue the fight for better resources for all students. The series, "Revival from the Roots: Tour of Philly's Neighborhood Schools," follows Jerry Jordan, President of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, and Helen Gym, parent and education advocate, as they hear first hand what's needed to turnaround public education.
