‘Night School’ documentary shows ways to get a diploma

MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Adult Learning is working hard to increase awareness of their services in Addison County. With that in mind, they will present “Night School,” an award winning documentary about adult students who want to earn their high school diplomas for on Wednesday, Jan. 24, at the Marquis Theater in Middlebury.
For adult learners Greg, Melissa, and Shynika, finally earning their high school diplomas could be a life-changing achievement. Emmy award-winning director Andrew Cohn’s documentary observes their individual pursuits, fraught with the challenges of daily life, and the broader systemic roadblocks faced by many low income Americans.
The Marquis restaurant, bar, and concessions open at 5 p.m. with the film showing at 6 p.m., and there will be a community panel discussion directly following the film. The film is free with a suggested $10 donation. All proceeds will go to Addison County adult students.
 Addison County’s Vermont Adult Learning branch served 136 students in the past year. Their hope is that this film will raise awareness and increase their ability to provide help to the many other adult students in the county.
