It is in our best interest to educate all children. But what happens when a small town’s school system suddenly becomes 50 percent minority? Crete Public Schools in Crete, Neb. has an answer. Administration, faculty and scholars examine how schools serve both students and the community while students themselves record their own footage of experience at school, home, work and play. “When We Stop Counting” humanizes the issues of education, immigration and, most important, our future. Follow six Hispanic high school students in Crete, living their personal struggles and triumphs while bearing the pressure of their parents’ backbreaking sacrifice in hopes of achieving the American dream. As part of Metropolitan Community College’s 8th annual Diversity Matters Film and Lecture Series, representatives from Crete Public Schools will introduce the video and lead a post-film discussion. The event will be held in Room 114.
