Francyne Huckabyb0a028670024a30dbf6459126ac0b17fe5ed9174This project was created in Scalar, an open source platform for authoring and publishing born-digital media rich scholarship. SCALAR is a model for 21st Century scholarly communication and a project of the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture. ANVC explores new genres for scholarship, forms for media-rich digital publishing, and paradigms for publication and warranting scholarship. SCALAR receives support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
They say we have choice. It’s a chance, not a choice. You put your kid in a lottery and you have a chance to get into a school; and you don’t even have a neighborhood school to fall back on. ~Parent Advocate, Journey for Justice
As an interactive documentary, Public Education|Participatory Democracy after neoliberalism, is a web-based ethnographic film project that integrates content—text, images, sounds, graphics, film, and a map—in a digital format. Because of the fluidity of the Internet and the SCALAR platform, you (the viewer-reader) can navigate as you wish. The filmwork—as a collection of short films (instead of a feature-length movie)—allows you to view given the time you want to devote to the project. The films are embedded in text throughout and available in the Film Collection. The text offers context, substance, theory and research that you can read. As the viewer-reader, you can move through this web-documentary by creating your own path, determining your pace, and returning as you desire. If interested in more in depth exploration, go to the Extended Play Collection for films of individual interviews and events. Because this is an on going project started in 2012, new pages and films appear regularly.
