Live Chat on The Learning, Friday 9/16

Posted on September 15, 2011

Join ITVS, PBS NewsHour, POV and the Economist Film Project on Friday, September 16 at 12:30pm PT / 3:30pm ET for an online panel discussion on the new documentary The Learning. The NewsHour will air an excerpt of the film on September 15 as part of the Economist Film Project, and the documentary will air in its entirety on September 20 on POV.

The Learning is the story of four Filipino women who are recruited to teach in Baltimore city public schools. With their increased salaries, they hope to transform their families' lives back in their impoverished country. But the women also bring idealistic visions of the teacher's craft and of life in America, which soon collide with Baltimore's tough realities.

Friday's live event is open to the public, and participants are encouraged to log on and ask questions.
