Abstract/Artist Statement

The problem with the public school system is that all students are not receiving a sufficient education for the pursuance of life-long learning. There is no single solution to fixing the shortcomings presented daily in our society’s classrooms, but there are steps we can take in ensuring that every child experiences an outstanding education. Tying Torn Shoes is a visual package with critical information that gives a deeper look into the issues at hand for the city of Stockton. Through the revamping of Dr. Lynn Beck’s, Dean of the School of Education at the University of the Pacific, “Unpacking Local Educational Concerns” and the photo capturing of rising Roosevelt Elementary students the project hopes to awaken the closed eyes of potential change makers.
