It’s no secret that earning a degree is hard work. Stressful final exams, a busy class schedule, and long nights of studying or writing papers can push any student. But on top of all of that, one in four college students is also trying to raise a child, adding childcare, school schedules, and other parenting duties on top of an already packed day.
This is the topic of Three Frame Media’s latest short documentary, “Raising Dreams,” which portrays two parent learners, their challenges, and their hopes for the future. This featurette was produced in partnership with Imaginable Futures, who funds the Rise Prize, a financial award for innovative solutions to better the lives of student parents.
