Chris Stewart talks one-one with high school student, Amani, about what is going on inside her school, what schools are doing right, what needs to change immediately and what teachers can learn from students. In a powerful, heartfelt conversation with Chris Stewart, hear Amani articulate how schools must find a way to teach to the lives of the students, starting with listening to them and keeping them safe. The student walk-out on May 31, 2016, was in protest to harsh treatment of students by school resource officers (SRO)s, who are gun carrying police officers assigned to public schools.
