iReport, CNN's video depot for citizen journalists, is looking for opinions about public schools. The iReport assignment reads "The Obama administration has pledged to reform the country’s school system and we want to know where you think they need to focus their attention. Are your schools all they should be? Show us what needs work."

Creating a video response to the iReport class project could be a good way to get students to think about what they would do to improve schools. Some iReport videos are selected for use on CNN News. Knowing that a high quality video could be used by CNN may motivate students to put forth their best, thoughtful efforts.
