Starting At Zero: Reimagining Education In America – Review

Starting at Zero: Reimagining Education in America

Everyone in the world knows that education is important. A good education that is engaging and thought provoking can enable children to reach their full potential, giving them the best future possible.

Education is not only about studies though, as many other skills can be learned from just being in a school environment. The interactions made and the friendships formed can influence a child at a very young age and stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Starting at Zero: Reimagining Education in America is a documentary that aims to discuss how beneficial life can be even before children enter the classroom – this stage is what they call Pre-K (pre-Kindergarten). Through interviews with many educators, politicians and education experts, Starting at Zero takes a politically unbiased look at the different ways that children can benefit from a Pre-K environment.

Split up into 5 episodes, each section looks in detail at every single aspect of life and how parents, teachers and even the friends they make can raise them up, giving their lives the proper start. Starting at Zero even talks to some of the children themselves, because who knows better what they want than the kids?

Focussing largely on the Alabama Pre-K program, Starting at Zero shows what goes on behind the scenes and how Alabama soon became the gold standard in pre-school education. There’s real passion in the voices of all involved, from the current Governor of Virginia, to the enthusiastic pre-K teachers ready to teach the new generation themselves. However, this means that the documentary can get a little sentimental at times, but this is the future of children that they’re talking about, so a little hope is understandable.

However, the documentary doesn’t really address the issues surrounding children with learning disabilities such as dyslexia which can be identified at a young age. Hopefully though this means that the program intends to treat them equally rather than ignore them entirely.

Starting at Zero: Reimagining Education in America may be preaching to the choir because it’s doubtful anybody would disagree with their sentiments, but it’s good to know that the next generation is still being considered so thoroughly.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
