Ripple Effect (2014)

3

RIPPLE EFFECT is a short documentary film that shows how essential a life skills education is to all young people. There are many issues facing our children: bullying, substance abuse, violence, lack of employability, and graduating high school. RIPPLE EFFECT demonstrates how learning life skills is the solution to these problems and has the power to change our world.

Educators and reformers from across the country, including former U.S. Secretary of Education Dick Riley, share how teaching life skills increases graduation rates, improves children’s self-esteem, makes schools safer, combats bullying and ensures that our children grow up to be healthy, productive citizens. With the message of the film, the filmmakers’ goal is to bring national attention to the need for life skills education and start a movement to improve the lives of ALL children for generations to come – a true ripple effect.
