LEARNING FROM COSTA RICA

WATCH THE TRAILER

Costa Rica has long been known among American tourists for its beautiful beaches, pristine rain forests, and comfortable, safe travel. Though surrounded by Central American nations grappling with economic and related gang problems, it is also a nation which stands out for having no defense budget.   A diverse group of American educators travel to Costa Rica to find out how a country with no defense budget prioritizes their educational system and what they might learn that could transform the schools they work in back home. In the process, they come away with not only a different view of Costa Rica, but deep insights into their own motivations to confront challenges facing schools in the United States.
