DCMP Spotlight: The Default Setting

I appreciated being able to write description for something that will help students outside the classroom. Default: The Student Loan Documentary explains how the financial aid system in the United States can set up students for money worries long after graduation. In this clip, two of the many former students featured look back on their high hopes and an author discusses the origins of the student loan system. 

DCMP Spotlight: Career Connections

You could say I took a tour of my home state of Ohio in this series, made by various local PBS stations. These many short videos open young people's minds to a world of careers with practical information about the skills and interests involved, including what to take in school to start the path to that career. There's a ridiculous variety to the jobs covered, from welding to marketing to accounting to hairstyling, to this one in a field near and dear to my heart: radio.
