You might know us from our famous I Love Public Schools t-shirts. We also make films about public schools.
Nebraska Loves Public Schools is dedicated to supporting public education one documentary film at a time. We’ve made over 100 films that share the stories of schools, students, and educators doing amazing things across the state. Want to know what’s happening in our public schools? Take a look. We’ve never had a shortage of inspiring stories to share. We invite you to explore the films, share what you learn, and discover how to take action with our toolkit.
In 2011, Nebraska Loves Public Schools began with one mission — to change the persistent, negative narrative about public schools. From short films about the positive, unexpected happenings in today’s classroom to feature films about societal issues impacting students and families, we document the stories of public schools across Nebraska to build awareness, empathy, and support.
Through our short films and features, countless TV and radio spots, a quickly-growing social media following, PBS-affiliate TV series, and strong rally cry with our original I Love Public Schools t‑shirts, we help friends and neighbors better understand what’s happening in the classroom, build pride Nebraska has in its public schools, and ignite the I Love Public Schools conversation nationwide.
Nebraska Loves Public Schools deserves a lot of credit for this expanded camaraderie and collaboration [between our state’s public schools]. They’ve helped unite public educators all across the state. They’ve helped share our stories. They’ve shown that they appreciate the work that we do every day for every student.”
Over the past year, a movement has grown throughout the educational community in Nebraska and has brought together those who are passionate about sharing the story of public schools throughout the state. And while this movement continues to spread through the tremendous films and social media campaigns Nebraska Loves Public Schools puts together, the spark has been a simple shirt with three words and a symbol.”
