HBO Documentary: Hard Times at Douglass High

This documentary takes a look at Douglass High School, a school where 50% of students fail to graduate. The school's staff struggle to raise achievement scores of students who are regularly at 4-5 years below grade level. The school eventually fails to meet adequate yearly standards and the city and state wrestle for control. This documentary is recommended for those who are interested in learning more about education inequalities.
