Inspiring Change in Education Through Media and Storytelling

March 20, 2024

In a world where traditional educational models often fall short of engaging learners, one nonprofit is harnessing the transformative potential of media and storytelling to revolutionize education. In this episode of our Better Learning podcast, Kevin Stoller delves into the innovative work of Second Class Foundation, inviting us to reimagine education through the lens of storytelling.

Second Class Foundation isn't just another nonprofit—it's a movement. By leveraging the captivating medium of storytelling, this organization is on a mission to inspire change in education. Through their groundbreaking docu-series, 'What We Show Them,' they shine a spotlight on the remarkable journey of Valley View Elementary School in Idaho. But this series isn't just about one school—it's about weaving together diverse narratives from different communities, each with its own unique challenges and triumphs. It's about sparking conversations, challenging perceptions, and ultimately, catalyzing positive change in education.

The name "Second Class Foundation" might raise eyebrows at first glance. What does it mean? Is it a commentary on the current state of education? Or perhaps a bold vision for the future? Kevin Stoller addresses these questions head-on, explaining that the name is intentionally provocative. It challenges us to confront the realities of our education system and inspires us to strive for a future where every learner is empowered to reach their full potential.

Whether it's through volunteering, making donations, spreading the word, or exploring funding options, there are countless ways to get involved. Because when it comes to reshaping the future of education, every voice matters, and every action counts.
