Fledgling Supports Sundance Doc The Bad Kids
Hello from Sundance! Tonight is the premiere of The Bad Kids and we are excited to announce that we have recently supported the film with a grant for outreach and engagement activities. Here is the synopsis of the film:
At a remote Mojave Desert high school, extraordinary educators believe that, more than academics, it is love, empathy and life skills that give at-risk students command of their own futures. This coming-of-age story watches education combat the crippling effects of poverty on the lives of these so-called “bad kids.”We are thrilled to be supporting this film because of its power to ignite a new conversation about how we think about educating children with all kinds of learning needs. We will be cheering them on tonight and as they begin the journey to launch this new conversation.
