How the media portrays Africa.

This is a documentary I did for my capstone project- a requirement for the completion of my Master’s degree.
I wanted to focus on an issue that is timeless and can also have positive effects on people and even media professionals.
I really enjoyed working on this project, because it gave me a better insight into some of the things I am passionate about and also made me think deeper than my normal self.
I hope you enjoy it.

MCCSC Hosts Public Meeting To Discuss Two Failing Schools

There’s a public hearing Tuesday for two Monroe County Schools labeled as failing. Fairview and Highland Park each received F’s from the state in 2013. Fairview also received an F in 2012.

The state requires schools that receive F’s to hold public hearings. MCCSC Director for Schools, Beverly Smith says the district is also working with the state to develop an improvement plan.

“When I say the state I’m talking about the Indiana Department of Education, to come up with plans to address the low grades and the low achievements and we will be talking about that tomorrow night. There will be presentations from both principals, as well as a chance for public comment”

The meeting starts at 7 o’clock Tuesday night.

Although Fairview and Highland Park individually received F’s, the MCCSC district overall received an A grade in 2013.
