In Their Own Words: First Generation College Going

By Bellwether

First Generation is an insightful film about the challenges of being the first in your family to go to college. Earlier this year I moderated a screening of the film in Washington with a great discussion – including students in the film – of the obvious and subtle barriers to post-secondary success facing these students.  Now, this week,  RealClearEducation is featuring interviews with students in the film.  There is an overview of the issues and the film, then interviews with Cecilia Lopez, and today Soma Leio. More to come tomorrow at RealClearEducation.
