Film Screening: Night School, a documentary by Andrew Cohn

The Jacobs Institute, San Diego Unified School District, San Diego Workforce Partnership and High Tech High Graduate School of Education invite you to join us for an exclusive screening of the documentary Night School by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Andrew Cohn, which was recently featured at the Tribeca Film Festival. We will host a brief panel with local experts prior to screening the film.


Indianapolis has one of the lowest high school graduation rates in the country. For adult learners Greg, Melissa and Shynika, finally earning their high school diplomas could be a life-changing achievement. Emmy award-winning director Andrew Cohn’s absorbing documentary observes their individual pursuits, fraught with the challenges of daily life and the broader systemic roadblocks faced by many low income Americans.
