Next week on KCPT, you’ll have the rare chance to take an intimate journey inside an American high school. With unprecedented access to students and teachers, 180 Days: A Year Inside An American High School explores a public school in Washington DC, one where only 7 percent of the students are deemed proficient in math, and the dropout rate is through the roof. Kansas City school superintendent Steve Green is facing many of the same challenges, and we’ll hear his reaction to this PBS series. But first here’s a sneak peek.
The two-part series, 180 Days: A Year Inside An American High School, airs Monday, March 25 and Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 8pm.
