Special Event: Screening of the Documentary Film Starting at Zero

Sharing from our partners at Lansing Community College:

The LCC Child Development and Early Education program is hosting a virtual screening of a documentary film, Starting at Zero: Reimagining Education in America April 7th-14th, with a virtual discussion about the film in WebEx on April 14th at 7:00 PM. This event is open to everyone (students, faculty, and community members) interested in exploring the importance of early childhood education, educational policy, and building a strong workforce.

“Starting at Zero explores the power of investing in high-quality early childhood education so that all children and families have the opportunity to attain the American Dream. The film brings together the voices of policymakers, educators, academics, business leaders, pediatricians, parents, and children.”

“Starting at Zero culminates with a call to governors across America for collective action: to set our nation on the path to future success through significant investments in high-quality early childhood education, both to support today’s workforce, and to build the workforce of tomorrow. At the heart of the film is the affirmation that if children are given the opportunity to thrive in settings with caring, responsive adults, the returns to our society will be deep and long-lasting.”

Please sign up if you interested in viewing the film . On April 6th all registrants will receive the link and directions on how to view the film, along with the WebEx invite for the virtual discussion on April 14th.

The link for the film will be live for viewing anytime between April 7th-14th. If you have questions about the event, please contact Tricia McKay at mckay6@lcc.edu. Please share with your networks, community partners, and others who may be interested.
