How often do we as producers get to work on a meaningful project AND get the chance to redo it in an additional version? I am lucky to have the opportunity to produce a two-part look (each one a half-hour long) for the public television series Ideas In Action with Jim Glassman exploring how targeted middle school intervention and effective school leadership is curbing the high school dropout crisis in America.
I also have the opportunity to turn the content into a 1-hour special that I am working on now. This will allow me to add even more great content that I found it hard to part with during the initial cuts. Here is a promo for the one-hour version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rISY_IAPgcc
As a mother, I’ve learned so much about how to help usher my children through their educational experiences. As an American, I am hopeful about our ability to educate all children regardless of their backgrounds. As a producer, I am thankful for the opportunity to share stories that may make a difference in someone’s life.
