A Class Divided – A Powerful Lesson in Discrimination

A Class Divided is a powerful lesson in discrimination from third grade teacher Jane Elliot and one of the most requested programs on PBS Frontline.

The day after Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed, Jane Elliott, a teacher in a small, all-white Iowa town, divided her third-grade class into blue-eyed and brown-eyed groups and gave them a daring lesson in discrimination. This is the story of that lesson, its lasting impact on the children, and its enduring power 30 years later.
