Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
This public media "authentic fiction" sought to crowdsource perspectives about education today. The Zed Omega teens, played by actors, "dropped out loud" from high school -- catalyzing open discussion about the structures and purpose of traditional education and its alternatives. The arc of each Zed Omega character was unscripted: they responded to ideas that people presented. The collaborative thought experiment and "interactive documentary" was live on social media during fall semester 2012. (-Learn more-) (-Credits-) (-Facebook-) (-Twitter-)

The Reason why Ive chosen these post as my top ten is, they all touched me in how i feel, felt and probably alwayswill feel about high school, its a Love and Hate Relationship but something most of us should at least try fail or succeed its a Big part of life.
The Zed Omegas created an activity for the Student Open House at the Walker in November: they created a long row of cookie-cutter silhouettes and invited passersby to personalize them with their high school selves. People also left their thoughts about school on whiteboards; Xavier holds up one he found.
Got a little confession for you guys…
Let you know what I find out. Stay tuned.
The Zed Omegas made this Teaser from when we visited the High School For Recording Arts because the Bullying Video was too Long lol! These Kids told us What was What and little Nicole took their comments like a Pro. :-)

“My experience with education was very positive and forced actually upon me by my teen parent mom who believed education was the key to my future. She herself dropped out of school so she could raise me…”
Xavier, Jeremy and Lizzie listen as a HSRA student tells her high school story. The High School for the Recording Arts invited the Zed Omegas to come talk with them in October 2012 about what high school was, is, and should be…. lots of straight talk. “School is my way out,” one student said. – Alan G.
