Education and Society and Tween Programming

Chris Mburu makes a great statement in the documentary A Small Act.
To paraphrase...
"For us, education is a matter of life and death."
The ignorant are easily led by power-hungry leaders.
The ignorant engage in violence and perpetuate a grim standard of living.

Chris Mburu was a Kenyan student whose education was paid for by Holocaust survivor Hilde Back.  Mburu now runs a Hilde Back education foundation to sponsor other Kenyan students.

I wonder what it would be like to show a less than five minute clip (fair use copyright) during a tween program and have a discussion about it.

What about having a multimedia tween program involving conversation, music, video, print, and games to talk about a concept?
