An Evening with M. Night Shyamalan
I Got Schooled
Please Join Us!
Famed director, screenwriter and producer M. Night Shyamalan has long had a serious interest in education. The foundation he and his wife started once gave college scholarships to promising inner-city students, but Shyamalan realized that these scholarships did nothing to improve education for all the other students in under-performing schools. When he learned that some schools were succeeding with similar student populations, he traveled across the country to find out how they did this and whether these schools had something in common. "I Got Schooled" details Night's journey of learning.
" 'I Got Schooled' is a breezily written, research driven call to change America's approach to education. Shyamalan is smart and sincere, and his innovative ideas are unbound by the educational establishment.' " -John Wilwol, NPR
