It's STILL Elementary examines the incredible impact of the groundbreaking original documentary, It's Elementary - Talking About Gay Issues in School. It's a great case study of how documentary filmmaking coupled with a robust grassroots campaign, can literally change the world. IT'S STILL ELEMENTARY follows up with teachers and students featured in the first film to see how having teachers in elementary and middle school who taught them about LGBT people affected their lives. It's STILL Elementary also documents the story behind the controversial PBS broadcast of It's Elementary and the infamous right-wing attacks on the film and its creators. It's STILL Elementary is a call to action for parents and educators to continue working for safe, inclusive schools.
"'It's STILL Elementary' is a powerful call to action to stop ignoring anti-gay slurs, and work for more welcoming and inclusive classrooms. Nobody can watch this movie and walk away without feeling that they too have a role to play in creating a climate that respects and protects all youth." Rhonda Thomason, Teaching Tolerance
