Abstract:

This episode looks at the special challenges faced by many Latina students through the stories of three remarkable young women. Just before her sophomore year of high school, Darlene Bustos became pregnant and began to miss classes and fall behind. Stephanie Alvarado lives with her family, who emigrated from El Salvador, on the south side of Chicago. Her school is under-resourced and the ever-present metal detectors make it feel more like a prison than a school. After her family became homeless, Chastity Salas coped as well as she could, but her strong sense of responsibility toward her family threatened to interfere with her education. Luckily, school staff recognized her problems and provided the support she needed to stay in school. Distributed by PBS Distribution.
