Building Momentum in Education [electronic resource]

This poignant compilation of four Momentum films - including Dreams of Education, Escaping Destiny, Ready to Learn, and Street Lessons - focuses on the importance students find in education and the various programs aimed at keeping children in school and out of trouble. It discusses the Pioneer Program, an educational initiative that has been implemented in a juvenile detention center in Ontario and how it has helped break the cycle of violence.
