Chile’s revolutionary high school documentary

A video Ñ Don’t Stop interviews students at the Santiago high school they say started the student protest movement.[i] A boy explained his school, “educates students to liberate themselves, with a freedom-minded outlook on life,” rather than be mindless workers for the system. While other Latin American countries are narrowing inequality, Chile has great income inequality; the World Bank reported that the richest 10% own 42% of the disposable income (compared to 30% in the US).[ii]
