Over the course of the 2002 Summer Seminar, Los Angeles area high school seniors conducted critical research at several Los Angeles area schools. This work included the collection of video data at several of the school sites. Feeling that these videos were particularly reflective of the troubling social and physical ecological conditions at Los Angeles public schools, one student research group decided to piece together this 4 minute video. The images in this video reflect the conditions faced by many Los Angeles public school students, particularly those in poor and working class areas. We hope this work speaks profoundly to the need to document and then transform the conditions in our schools.
