The Cost of an Inaccessible Early Childhood Education is "America's Darkest Future"

Directed And Produced By Ty Cooper

Lifeview Marketing has teamed up with the non-partisan and non-profit grass root organization, Virginia Organizing, to place a spotlight onto an issue plaguing our society, the inaccessibility of a quality early education. The documentary, America's Darkest Future's mission is simple, to discover the simple answer to the simple question - "why isn't pre-K accessible to all American children and how do we turn it around?" The answers have included the following: Low Priority, Cost,  Transportation and Overreach by Government. Neither is an acceptable answer when children are entering kindergarten to be held back because of the lack of school readiness. These students begin to experience self-esteem issues and often never overcome the existing achievement gap.


The issue of inaccessibility is not the only factor of disparity when it comes to the existing achievement gap, the filmmakers also define and illustrate what determines quality within a pre-K program. Quality programs are even more inaccessible to many.


Community members have rallied to support this national project. From donations, film appearances, and/ serving on the advisory committee, these supporters realize the importance of this issue and are determined to change the outcome of an underserved community. Film appearances include but not limited to: Robert Pianta, Early Education Scholar & Dean of the Curry School, University of Virginia - Juandiego Wade, Charlottesville City School Board Member - Shelia Pleasants, Executive Director of the Southside Child Development Center - Steven Dow, Executive Director of CapTulsa (Oklahoma) - Psychologists - Parents - Teachers and other contributors.

    A Brief Blurb About Us

    The owner and founder of Lifeview Marketing has promoted over 1000 events since founding an entertainment promotion  company in 1993 as a college student. The initial purpose was to provide entertainment to the college audience serving as an outlet to release stress and have fun. Events such as College Weekend on the Slopes, College Reunion (Spring Break) in Daytona Beach and other destination locations received national recognition by major television networks.  As the company rapidly expanded its geographical footprint, more services outside of the college market began to provide national exposure. As the original projects continued growing, the owner began writing stage plays, promoting concerts, serving as a booking agent for colleges and promoters, providing consultation for independent music artists, created a film festival, managed comedians, party djs and briefly managed Maxine Jones, formerly of EnVogue after her departure from the multi-million album selling group, providing branding services for city municipalities - non-profits - and for profit entities, and produced documentaries, tv commercials, and more. Currently, Lifeview Marketing is producing the documentary by Ty Cooper, America's Darkest Future.  The company is expected to publish Cooper's manuscript in 2017, providing much insight into the world of marketing in the entertainment business. Over 23 years worth of jewels.
