A Classroom Divided

Suggested By: Ananda

One day in 1968, Jane Elliott, a teacher in a small, all-white Iowa town, divided her third-grade class into blue-eyed and brown-eyed groups and gave them a daring lesson in discrimination. This is the story of that lesson, its lasting impact on the children, and its enduring power thirty years later.

  • Holy shiz.. I don’t think my mouth has closed once.. I am in absolute awe through the first 12 minutes of this movie.. This should honestly be shown to students in elementary school..

  • Amazing.. Now.. Does anybody have the entire movie “The eye Of The Storm”?

    A teacher at my high school did this experiment every year for his classes, among other interactive lessons. I was never in his class, but it always seemed to have the desired effect.

    This isn’t one of those artfully created masterpieces of a documentary, but the subject matter was definitely interesting enough to keep me watching. Great lesson.

    Ron Paul is the man that the establishment fears. He will not allow Americans’ freedoms to be taken away little by little, as they are now. He believes that you should be able to live your life in the way that you see fit, as long as you do not harm others. He will not continue to fuel the war machine and waste our dear soldiers’ lives and our money. He will bring all the troops home instead of occupying all these other countries and making more and more enemies. We would not tolerate another country invading our land and patrolling our streets with armed soldiers wearing the uniform of a foreign nation. We should not do this to other countries either. For Freedom, for Peace, vote for the defender of the Constitution, Ron Paul!
    (And whether you like him or not, please don’t let his enemies give you your opinion of him. I urge everyone, check out his site for yourself!)
