Enquête

In 2006, a Grade 3 teacher in Quebec resorted to a drastic strategy to solve a persistent problem in her class. She subjected her 26 students to a “lesson in discrimination,” in the hope that experiencing it would help them understand the distress of students who are ostracized because they are different. The resulting documentary stunned television viewers in Canada and around the world. Today the children are all grown up, but they all remember those two dramatic days. From their new perspectives as young adults, they take another look at The Lesson. All these years later, how do they feel about the experiment? Why did some of them reject the privileges that their classmates so enthusiastically accepted? And most importantly, does one ever truly heal after enduring years of abuse as a punching bag for fellow students?
