Learning to SurviveUnknown - 1998
This episode brings some encouraging news to viewers about public schools that are preparing youth and retraining adults to provide the backbone of our 21st-century workforce. Traveling the country, Smith tracks common strategies for successful education in locations as diverse as Cincinnati, Ohio; Oakland, California; and the Rio Grande Valley of southern Texas. A rare visit to schools in Shanghai, China, where thousands of young people are gearing up to compete in the global marketplace, underlines the urgency of our educational mission here in the States. Optimistic teachers, students, principals, and activists provide refreshing proof that all children are capable of learning and that displaced working people can reconnect to the economy by retooling their skills in the classroom.
