PlattForm Films has announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the distribution of Reconstructing the Dream, a documentary that examines the growing gap between the skills todays companies demand from their workforce and the willingness of Americas higher education leaders to provide those skills to students.
We all know them: talented, well-educated people working in jobs beneath their abilities. Despite the hard work and dedication it took them to achieve a college education, they find themselves at dead ends, with even bleaker prospects than if they hadnt attempted to pursue a degree. Whats startling is that there are jobs available if they only had the right skills. This, in essence, is the crux of the skills gap. Millions of people are following a path they believe will lead to the American dream and ending up without a job and deep in debt.
Hosted and narrated by Dr. William Bennett, former U.S. Secretary of Education under President Ronald Reagan, Reconstructing the Dream shares the stories of graduates from every sector of higher education in their quest to find work and realize their version of the American dream. Featuring interviews with prominent educators, political leaders, students and graduates from all walks of higher education, Reconstructing the Dreams purpose is to challenge the nation's political leaders, the U.S. Department of Education and education stakeholders across all sectors to offer solutions for how we, as Americans, might work together to reconstruct our education system.
