180 Days: A Year Inside An American High School

180 Days: A Year Inside An American High School


This special 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. (Source: PBS)

Conclusion. Chronicling a year at Washington Metropolitan High School in Washington, D.C., an inner-city school where, on any school day, about half of the students don't show up. Second-year principal Tanishia Williams Minor features in the documentary, which also delves into the lives of students. One moved from New Orleans to D.C. with her family after Hurricane Katrina; another is a veteran of foster care; and another, who achieves good grades, may not be able to afford college.
