M. Night Shyamalan on Closing the Achievement Gap
Wednesday, September 11, 2013
M. Night Shyamalan, director of the films “The Sixth Sense” and “Unbreakable,” talks about the five keys to closing America’s achievement gap and improving education for all. He and his wife started a foundation that gave college scholarships to promising inner-city students, but they realized that these scholarships did nothing to improve education for all the other students in under-performing schools. In his book I Got Schooled he tells what he learned traveling around the country to study high-performing schools in disadvantaged neighborhoods.
