GO PUBLIC: A Day in the Life of an American School District is a 90-minute documentary of one entire day in the Pasadena Unified School District. Pasadena is a racially and economically diverse community in Southern California with 28 public school campuses. GO PUBLIC tells the story of one full day from sun up to long after sundown.
Most people have opinions about public education. Some are based on fact. Some are based on fear. Some are based on perception. But how often do we see and hear the people actually living the public school experience? “GO PUBLIC is the antidote to films like Waiting for Superman and Won’t Back Down” (Washington Post).
