Abstract:

"All over the country, public schools are suffering from overcrowding, poor facilities, and unsafe conditions for the students. Combating these problems and working to strengthen our country's public schools are community organizers, parents, and the students themselves. Made with the participation of three highly respected organizations, Oakland Community Organization (OCO), Northwest Bronx Coalition of Community and Clergy (NWBCCC), and The Boston Parent Organizing Network (BPON), this character-based documentary focuses on the powerful changes made when communities across the country come together to improve the future of today's youth."--Container.
