Streaming Video - 2009
Rate this:
Despite its horrific destruction, Hurricane Katrina gave New Orleans educators the opportunity to reinvent a school system that wasn't working. This program chronicles the first official year of public school in New Orleans after the storm and the transition to the widespread use of charter schools in the city. Focusing on predominantly African-American schools, the film examines the situation from the perspective of several different teachers and principals-while also illustrating the hopes and frustrations of students and their families as new schools are constructed and new teaching methods are put into action. Interviews feature KIPP Schools cofounder Mike Feinberg and many other education experts.
