Plot Outline: This program with Bill Moyers compares the everyday experiences of two New York City middle school students and contrasts political rhetoric with the reality of American schooling. A profile of the two students and their different schools points out the inequalities of our current system and how disproportionate funding affects the quality of education. The program also features advocates for educational reform, who debate what the Democratic and Republican parties can do to improve schools. Among those interviewed are John Chubb, author of Politics, Markets, and America’s Schools, and Jonathan Kozol, author of Savage Inequalities.
