180 Days in an American School
Monday and Tuesday, March 25 & 26, 8 p.m. | WKAR
180 Days in an American School gives space and breadth to our nation’s education reform debate by giving the audience a first-hand view of what happens in a school that meets the needs of the most challenged students in new and sometimes non-traditional ways.
Observe a tireless team of teachers and school leaders dealing with the usual antics of teenagers and the changing tides of a fast-moving administration that is responding to pressures from outside partners, politicians and forces in the community.
A surprising and dramatic end to the school year sheds light on both the extraordinary challenges and opportunities today’s public schools face.
