    Public schools, mass shootings, and art?

    Mateo talks with retired public school teacher of 25+ years (and his brother) Stephen Gutiérrez about his life as an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher in the Ann Arbor Public School system. Where did it all go wrong? What were some of the causes and effects of mass shootings on your life as a teacher? Where do we go from here and how does this all relate to art and the purpose of art today?
