Title: Two Million Minutes, a Global Examination
Url: http://www.2mminutes.com/
Publisher: Two Million Minutes
Description: This is a documentary that stresses the universal importance of education and composes a global snapshot of education, from the viewpoint of kids preparing for their future. From the time a student graduates 8th grade they have approximately two million minutes until their high school graduation. Learn how students from the United States, China and India, spend their time to build their intellectual foundation, prepare for college, and ultimately a career, and how they go from a teenager to an adult. How these students spend their Two Million Minutes - in class, at home studying, playing sports, working, sleeping, socializing or just goofing off -- will effect their economic prospects for the rest of their lives. The goal of this film is to help answer the question: Are we doing enough with the time we have to ensure the best future for all? It also addresses what many are calling a crisis for U.S. schools regarding chronically low scores in math and science indicators.There is a two minute trailer on the website that you can watch prior to purchasing the DVD.
