Rural Arizona school focus of George Lucas Education Foundation project

HUMBOLDT, Ariz. — An education foundation started by “Star Wars”
filmmaker George Lucas has its camera aimed at a rural Arizona school.

The Daily Courier reported Saturday that the George
Lucas Educational Foundation will film Humboldt Elementary School in Humboldt in

The oldest school in its district, the campus is being spotlighted for being
high-performing despite its rural location and low-income student population.

School leaders said they underwent extensive interviews with representatives
from Edutopia, a Lucas-owned company that oversees film productions labeled as
“Schools that Work.”

A crew will be at the school from Aug. 25-28 and document classroom activities
and staff meetings.

Edutopia films selected schools to show effective learning methods for K-12
