Series Description: This series takes viewers on a uniquely intimate journey through a year in the lives of students, teachers and school leaders in one Washington, DC public high school. The series is framed by volatile national and local politics aimed at reforming this most fundamental of public institutions, but the lives at the center of "180 Days," most especially those of the five students whose stories take the viewer from the day 1 to day 180, seem at once deeply impacted by and yet profoundly separate from the "Race to the Top."
Observe a team of teachers and school leaders dealing with teenagers and pressures on the administration. [116 minutes]
A surprising and dramatic end to the school year sheds light on both the extraordinary challenges and opportunities today's public schools face. [116 minutes]
