Who's In, Who's OutUnknown - 2012
Contrary to popular belief, adequate preparation for college-level study is not an option for the majority of America's public-school students. This program exposes the educational "sorting machine," the factors that mold a child's academic future, through the case of a set of twins from Nevada: one, an academically oriented high achiever who is encouraged to take honors classes, and the other, a musically inclined student who, turned off by the demands of school, is allowed to simply slide by with low-level coursework. It also illustrates how smaller, more intimate learning environments are increasing opportunities for high school students in New York City and greater Cincinnati who were falling through the cracks.
