"Use this ABC News program to explore links between a wide range of educational issues: school safety, overcrowding, privatization, and poor academic performance. The video takes viewers inside Chester High, a Pennsylvania school racked with security, staffing, and financial problems; in fact, Chester's difficulties are so great that the company hired to run the school has pulled out. With commentary from many sectors of the community-including students, parents, school board members, and a young principal who tried to make a difference at Chester-Failing Grade sums up the frustrations of everyday people struggling to provide children with a decent education. (22 minutes)."
