I stumbled upon a riveting new pilot tv series currently in development called Myseducation! In life there are many lessons we learn in school but the most valuable lessons we learn are often on you step off the school grounds and into the arena of life.Education is key but does not always have to come from once source or platform.Common sense and awareness of your environment are major necessities for teen to survive especially in an urban setting. MysEducation is a coming of age story that explores the plight of african american teen girls through the lens of two main characters, Tomi and Kayla, raised in the inner city phenomenon.The urban american experience in the educational system is often neglected or not understood and because of the lack of resolutions many issues of these students are carried over into adulthood! MysEducation can very well be a source and a step to solving certain urban education issues by acknowledging and viewing these anecdotes visually. The show is written by Yakira Chambers, directed by Jarrett Conaway and executive produced by Jason Calabro and Yakira Chambers.
