2015 Consider the Alternative Screening Tour Dates

See the film that humanizes the conversation about charter schools, public schools & closing the achievement gap.


  This summer, we’re taking on 93 counties and eight zones for a three-month screening tour across Greater  Nebraska. Until today, our new film, Consider the Alternative, had only been available in limited release at events in Omaha and Lincoln. Now, the hour-long documentary is coming to theaters across the Cornhusker state for free, community screenings.


The film and panel discussions that follow each event will focus on the implications education reform decisions can have on all schools – both urban and rural. Tax scholarships, vouchers and primarily charter schools might seem like an issue limited to Omaha and Lincoln, however the complexities can impact small, local traditional public school communities around the state. The film contrasts the ideas of charter schools with what’s possible in traditional public schools and why it’s important for continual community support in our traditional public schools.

Greater Nebraska plays a huge role in determining the next step for change in our public schools. With each screening event, we hope to celebrate your communities, show the film and open a dialogue about what’s going on in your area to better understand the educational landscape across the state.

Want to ensure we make a stop in your town? Drop us a line here.

WE NEED YOUR HELP Nebraska is a big state – we all know this well. While we’re booking more and more screenings, we’d love your help sharing the word across the state. We’re reaching out to anyone and everyone involved in education. If they’re a taxpayer in Nebraska, they’re an investor in our public education and it’s important for everyone to be involved. From our schools to the business communities, please help us share our screening tour with your friends, family, colleagues and neighbors.
