Editor’s Note: Tulane University and NolaVie partnered together for Dr. Vicki Mayer’s Public Intellectual 2.0 course. The students interviewed community members, analyzed data and reports, and deconstructed how to foster and enrich public intellectuals in the community. The final projects resulted in articles, videos, and mixed-media designs that articulate the learnings and themes uncovered in the course. NolaVie will be publishing those reports on a weekly basis.
This video comes from Eric Bell, Tulane student and documentary filmmaker, who investigates the disparities between private and public high schools in New Orleans from those who have been through the system or dropped out of the system.
