Dave went to SXSW Edu
- A lot about equality and movements
- First gen students or millennial and teachers
- We instead of Me – students wanted to be part of something bigger than themselves.
- How many colleges are getting rid of textbooks because they are too expensive (~50% of tuition on average)
- First Gen Dreamer Student talked about how high schools aren’t preparing students for college.
- How we treat students who are expelled or put in detention and how it puts students behind and leads to a worse situation for the student.
- Media literacy and teaching students to tell real/fake news.
- This will many times send people down the wrong path.
- Combat by having students take a fact and try to push it from each side’s agenda
