    Game Changers Amidst the debate over fixing the country's ailing education system, THE GAME CHANGERS tells of a bold initiative designed to transform American classrooms. In 2009, the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation launched an innovative pilot program to identify high-ability people in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math), fund their training at four universities and create new teacher-preparation programs that focus on the skills and knowledge needed in the Information Age. Each student would receive a $30,000 stipend in exchange for completing the newly created master's degree program. Then, they would go to work in Indiana's high-need rural and urban schools. Sixty individuals from different walks of life, from recent college graduates to career-changers, took the daunting challenge. THE GAME CHANGERS follows the Fellows for two years, from university preparation through their first year heading their own classrooms. How do the teachers fare in their new roles? Can they make the difference in the lives of students? Can they make a difference in improving American schools? duration 57:04   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    America Reframed [#203] The Medicine Game This program shares the remarkable journey of two brothers from the Onondaga Nation driven by a single goal; to beat the odds and play lacrosse for national powerhouse Syracuse University. The obstacles in their way are frequent and daunting. In their darkest hour, and with their dreams crumbling around them, the boys must look to their family and to their Native teachings for guidance and stability. It is their search for identity that transitions this film from a playful coming of age story, into an important study of modern Native American life. It follows their story over the next six years as they struggle to rebuild their friendship, rescue a fading childhood dream, and gain a more resolute understanding of their identity and culture, both as athletes and the next generation of the Onondaga people. duration 1:26:39   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Outside The Box Amid controversy, charter schools - free public schools funded by tax dollars - first opened in the United States 20 years ago, largely in response to low graduation rates and the failure of schools to better prepare students for higher education and the job market. Today, charter schools make up an increasing percentage of the U.S. educational landscape, with approximately 5,000 schools in 41 states. Featuring interviews with experts, educators, parents and students, OUTSIDE THE BOX offers insights into the operation of charter schools and examines their short-term and long-term effectiveness. The half-hour documentary also explores the financial challenges of opening a charter school and examines the role of authorizers, those responsible for granting charters and overseeing the school's academic performance, financial health and more. OUTSIDE THE BOX visits several nationally recognized schools, including The Preuss School in San Diego, Christel House Academy in Indianapolis and KIPP Empower Academy in South Central Los Angeles. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
