Class of ’27 takes an in-depth look at the people who overcome considerable odds to bring early education to impoverished rural America. The film focuses on students, educators, parents, and guardians in three locations: Owsley County, Kentucky; White Earth Reservation in Minnesota; and farm workers following the growing season in the Western states, and the challenges facing our youngest students, their families and school systems.
This engagement guide is designed to help early childhood program administrators, teachers, in-service trainers, and organizations use the film to advance local conversations on education and early learning. The three-part format of the film makes it a very flexible engagement tool to spark discussions about different topics related to poverty and early childhood education.
