180 Days: American High School

PBS follows one struggling District of Columbia school's journey to redemption. This is probably one of the more realistic depictions of what really goes on in urban schools across the nation. Here, you get to hear from the CHILDREN, teachers, parents, and community leaders who all come together to support the school. There aren't any assessment companies, sponsors, or politicos recording this to insert propaganda or political agendas. They instead delve into the lives of the people interact with the children the most. I've seen this story play out in so many places. Parents, teachers, and communities do in fact care for their youth...I'm just glad someone caught this on camera for a more accurate picture.
