EDUCAUTION is a journey documentary film created by graduate students, who are concerned about the future of the American Higher Education System. By focusing on the economic issues surrounding the higher education system, the film examines the increasing concerns of many Americans regarding the continuing decrease in the quality, value, and financial return of higher education in the market place. Through interviewing fellow Americans with real stories from diverse backgrounds, our goal has been to examine the current system, offer hope, and propose solutions towards preserving the American Higher Education System - a system that has been the main force behind much of the Modern World's achievements and advances.

EDUCAUTION, currently an Independent USC Graduate Thesis Documentary Film, will be followed by EDUCAUTION 101, a full feature documentary film, which aims at taking a more comprehensive look at the education system as a whole in America-- starting from the moment of birth to college and beyond.

The journey to make this thesis film started in Southern California, home to one of the best university systems in the world. After starting the film in Los Angeles, our journey in exploring this issue has taken us to Northern California, Texas and Washington D.C. Additionally, we have interviewed activists and experts from numerous regions of our country including New York, Michigan, and Alaska. After talking to hundreds of students, teachers, parents, administrators, activists, experts, economists, politicians, and interviewing more than 40 individuals. As we are finishing the production process and entering the post-production process of making this film, we would like to say hello by sharing our first teaser. Further, we would like to invite you to share your higher education stories with us.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
The EDUCAUTION Team

There was a time when US education was respected as among the best available. What changed ? Charlotte Iserbyt will tell you - and her story makes far too much sense viewed against the wish of industrialists for compliant wage slaves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDyDtYy2I0M
