Nebraska Loves Public Schools Releases New Video "Seeds of Hope"

“Seeds of Hope”, the latest documentary from Nebraska Loves Public Schools was just released. Nebraska Loves Public Schools is dedicated to supporting public education one documentary film at a time.

A message of hope reverberates throughout the entirety of the moving, 35-minute exploration into the education of immigrant and refugee students and the adaptation to life in America that those students, and their families, face.

The film is elegant, its subjects direct, genuine, endearing, and most importantly, real. “Seeds of Hope” is powerful, but because of its message, which isn’t built on persuasion or an overly-aggressive tug at the heart strings, but rather simple reality.

Nebraska leads the nation in refugee resettlement, and since 2000 its public schools have seen a 113 percent increase in English Language Learner (ELL) students.

Chadron Public Schools is one of the featured districts in the documentary, and Kiowa Rogers and Julie Downing of ESU13 were part of a panel discussion on the day of the film's release.
