After watching The Lottery, which uncovers the failures of the traditional public school system, I started to think about the shortcomings of the current traditional education system. Since the pinnacle of education is getting into college, I believe higher education has shifted from learning to profit maximization as its core purpose. The pursuit of short-term profit and greed is a common theme in all of the documentaries I have listed, which is what ultimately led to the predicament we are in today.
If I had to produce a documentary, I would shed a light on the inevitable student loan crisis, and the collective action we can do to prevent it from happening.
Much like the Great American Banking Crisis (this is a must read article from RollingStone), I believe we will witness something just as globally shattering with the looming crash of higher education loans. The rising cost of higher education coupled with the diminishing value of college degrees can only lead to a downhill spiral.
