Winter Evenings with Nora Jacobson

Part Four, Doers and Shapers

Part Four explores the people and institutions that push boundaries. Starting with education, we take an engrossing journey through the philosophy of John Dewey, leading to the hands-on style of Goddard College, the Putney School, and the inseparable connection between education and democracy. We explore other progressive movements: Vermont’s famous Billboard law and Act 250, cultural movements such as Bread and Puppet theater and finally Vermont’s groundbreaking civil union law. Democracy at work—differing voices, different points of view. See more at the Vermont Movie website.
