We Have to Do Something Different: Teachers in the Journey to Create More Equitable Schools is a new documentary film produced by MIT’s Teaching Systems Lab.
Across the U.S., our schools are struggling to serve all students, and to help all students succeed. On the journey to create more equitable schools, teachers make thousands of choices each day that impact the lives of their students. From Oakland, CA to Boston, MA, we follow teachers into the space where real change happens: the classroom. As educators grapple to find out what every student needs, they’re working to make school a place where all students can thrive.
We Have to Do Something Different is designed to help educators make change in their own schools. The film provokes important conversations about the big challenges facing schools by taking a detailed look at the small steps teachers around the country are taking every day to help their students succeed. These dedicated teachers provide hope that, while the systemic inequities in our schools won’t disappear overnight, educators can make a positive impact, starting now.
