U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan is in Haiti this week to discuss education reform. In addition to visiting schools and meeting national leaders, Secretary Duncan met with Girl Rising’s Wadley, the girl so determined to be educated she was undaunted by the earthquake, the loss of her home and being turned away at the school doors.

The Documentary Group’s Girl Rising is not only a film and a movement for girls’ education: it’s a free school curriculum for upper elementary, middle and high schools. Bring Girl Rising – the film or the curriculum – to your community. For more information, click here.
