Final Project Idea

For my final project I want to cover two charter schools Hope Charter(http://www.hopecschool.org/) and Arise Academy(http://ariseacademychs.org/). Both these schools cater to students in foster care and with behavioral issues. Both these schools have also been recommended for closure and on April 19th the the SRC will vote whether to keep them open or not. I want to discover what these schools are really about and document their struggle to stay open in the face of budget cuts.

  1. I like this idea, especially the focus of the schools. It’d be really interesting if you could get some footage of the kids, but that’s going to be a little difficult for you, I have a feeling. Go for it though! Talk to a guidance counselor at the school, see if they’d be interested in talking to you and maybe trying to set something up. When talking to them, I’d definitely emphasize that you’re interesting in giving them exposure to help them keep their doors open. Good luck!
