Episode Detail: The Way We See It: What Makes A School Worth Going To? - In the Mix
Students and teachers at high schools around the country explore reasons why their schools work. In New Mexico, it's art and video classes for a talented student who's had trouble paying attention in his other classes. A San Antonio school works because it's small (“It's the sense of belonging that makes a school special,” says a student). And in Evanston, Ill., teachers and counselors found resources for a good student with family problems. Students, especially minorities, won't “be allowed to disappear,” says a teacher.
