"The Lottery" is a documentary film which poignantly addresses many of the issues surrounding education reform, centered upon a group of students hoping to attend the Harlem Success Academy. After premiering at the The Tribeca Film Festival last year, the film has garnered much praise from film critics and education professionals alike. Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion during which students can directly engage with leading education reformers, such as Michael Regnier, the Director of Policy at the NYC Charter School Center, and Paola Zalkind, Leadership Resident at Harlem Success Academy I.
This event is co-sponsored by the African Students Association, Black Law Students Association, Black and Latino Student Caucus, Child Rights Group, Education Law and Policy Society and the Global Initiative for Social Change through the Art.
