About Us

MJ Abdullah and Lauretta Ali-Abdullah

In order to meet the domestic and global challenges needed in the 21st century. We have an educational model that combines education and entertainment arts.  This can be an effective tool for students because the arts speak a "universal language" that will hold their attention. Thereby drawing out of them a love and motivation to learn and teach. All human beings cry the same way. There is no language barrier. A crying baby, child or adult all sound the same. Music, song, dance and other performing arts mediums, can send messages that bridge the gap of ethnicity, cultural identity and class distinctions that oftentimes can impede academic and human progress.  We must train and educate our future generations to be prepared to lead in every field of human endeavor; with special emphasis on science, technology, mathematics and engineering. The public school system is overwhelmed and has not produced the quality of students needed to meet the domestic and global needs of a highly technologically and industrially advanced world. We have found an increasing need for alternative models to traditional educational methods. Therefore, we created "On The Spot Edutainment.”  

Bullying: A Shameful Dilemma--The Movie

On The Spot Edutainment has been promoting our documentary movie entitled "Bullying: A Shameful Dilemma.” The movie addresses this very serious issue of bullying as a “social disease" in our nation's schools, particularly because of its long term negative effects on our youth and its barrier to the education process. This social disease however, is not limited to our schools, colleges and universities. It is in our homes, neighborhoods, our communities, in the workplace, corporate board rooms etc. I am very concerned and involved with this issue because I was bullied as a child by some of my teachers as well as many fellow students throughout elementary school. If through our efforts together, with your support, we can save one child from suicide or committing homicide, we soar to success.   

You Can Help!

By partnering with On the Spot Edutainment, you can help support the distribution of a comprehensive anti-bullying campaign that will be available in schools across the country. Funding will be used to produce the film Bullying: A Shameful Dilemma and related materials that are designed to “edutain” children, teachers and parents how to identify those that are bullying others as well as those who are suffering. Your donations will also enable On the Spot Edutainment to facilitate seminars and workshops for all who request assistance in their fight to eradicate this illness. Finally, On the Spot Edutainment will use your support to modify our education system by training administrators to understand the signs and symptoms of bullying and address the issue appropriately. In short, your support can literally save a child’s life.
