Editorial Reviews

Some of the most interesting films of the 20th-century American classroom are not those that teach skills in math, language or science, but those that explore delicate topics of social skills, drug use, sexual development, and juvenile delinquency because, let's face it, even well-educated and -disciplined kids occasionally make bad choices. These were topics that parents, and sometimes even teachers, were uncomfortable discussing with the kids, and so the 16mm projector was wheeled into the classroom to cast light upon such issues. Some films manage to be poignant and insightful, while others are simply painful to watch, as they bungle their attempts to communicate to the troubled teens of their time. This volume of Classic Educational Shorts, from the A/V Geeks Film Library, presents a varied sampling of films aimed at the awkward adolescents of yesteryear, and reveals the changing hopes and fears of a nation as it moved from the conservative, prosperous postwar years into the social upheaval of the 1960s and beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Troubled Teens of Yesteryear! July 2, 2013
Verified Purchase
What's not to like about these old school educational DVDs? The video transfer is fine and this (and others from the series) works great in any of our DVD players (vehicle players as well). My experience is that anything from Kino Video is as advertised and trouble free! Enjoyable!
