On Thursday, Oct. 4, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., the Department of Teacher Education at Clayton State University will present another installment in the Fall 2012 Teacher Education Film Series.
Thursday’s film will be, “Precious Knowledge,” to be shown in room 102 of the main building at Clayton State – East on Trammell Road. This showing is free and open to the public.
“Precious Knowledge” tells the story of Tucson High School, where ethnic studies programs have improved graduation rates among Latino students. However, some state politicians think ethnic studies promote “racial solidarity” and anti-Americanism. When books are banned and the programs eliminated, teachers and students fight back in a modern civil rights struggle, depicted in the film
