FREE SCREENING: WHEN WE STOP COUNTING
Tuesday, October 26 - 7:00 p.m.

This screening is free and open to the public.

It is in our best interest to educate all children. But what happens when a small town’s school system suddenly becomes 50% minority? Crete Public Schools, in Crete, Nebraska, has an answer. When We Stop Counting follows six Hispanic high school students, living their personal struggles and triumphs while bearing the pressure of their parents’ backbreaking sacrifice in hopes of achieving the American Dream.

Administrators, faculty and scholars examine how schools serve both students and the community, while students themselves record their own footage of experiences at school, at home, at work and at play. When We Stop Counting humanizes the issues of education, immigration, and most importantly, our future.

Shot, directed and produced by:
Brent Meier, El Centro de las Américas
Elisabeth Reinkordt, Nebraska Department of Education
