Intimately and exuberantly, AUGUST TO JUNE is a voice for values we are on the brink of losing in the single-minded pursuit of higher test scores for our students! In the era of No Child Left Behind rigidity, we spend a year in a public school classroom happily going against the current. The film follows 26 8-10 year-olds as they write poems, raise chickens, resolve differences, and find their own voices. With humor and poignancy AUGUST TO JUNE reveals some of the complexity involved in a meaningful education, and gently asks audiences to stop and consider how we achieve the goal of curious and creative adults able to support a democratic society.
