    Water Pressures Water is a central element of life, yet 1 in 8 people worldwide - 1.2 billion - lack access to safe drinking water. In the coming years, the water scarcity in some drought-stricken regions will turn into a global crisis. Hosted by actor-producer Adrian Grenier, this program sheds light on this critical, complex issue by documenting the partnership between villagers in water-distressed Rajasthan, India and students and faculty at Northwestern University, situated on the shores of Lake Michigan. Students in a Northwestern environmental policy class see a model of conservation and community cooperation firsthand on a 10-day trip to India, where a leading nonprofit organizations illustrates the power of pairing traditional wisdom with simple teamwork to solve the water crisis in the Thar Desert. They also meet with political leaders, corporate executives and water experts to create their own local partnerships and try to make a difference in their own communities. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    180 Days: A Year Inside An American High School [#101] This program 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." duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • MORNING
  • 7:00 am
    Tavis Smiley Reports [#301H] Education Under Arrest Many public schools are still operating under the 1999 "Zero Tolerance" initiative, which tied federal funding to this mandate. "Zero Tolerance," which came about after the horrifying Columbine tragedy, demands that kids be removed from schools the first time they transgress - even for minor offenses. This puts them into the juvenile justice system - a system that those who work within its confines admit too often does a better job of punishment than rehabilitation and re-integration into schools. This program looks at the connection between the juvenile justice system and the dropout rate among American teens and the efforts to end this link. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
