    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 US educational landscape, with approximately 5000 schools in 41 states.< br> Featuring interviews with experts, educators, parents and students, this program offers insights into the operation of charter schools and examines their short-term and long-term effectiveness. It 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.

    POV [#2611H] Best Kept Secret At a public school in Newark, New Jersey, the staff answers the phone by saying, "You've reached John F. Kennedy High School, Newark's best-kept secret." JFK provides an exceptional environment for students with special-education needs. In "Best Kept Secret," Janet Mino, who has taught a class of young men for four years, is on an urgent mission. She races against the clock as graduation approaches for her severely autistic minority students. Once they graduate and leave the security of this nurturing place, their options for living independently will be few. Mino must help them find the means to support themselves before they "age out" of the system. By Samantha Buck. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG

    Schools That Change Communities A unique, engaging documentary that turns the current focus of education on its head. While most US schools keep their students bottled up in classrooms as a way of increasing their test scores, this very upbeat special focuses on a diverse range of K-12 public schools in five states that instead break down the walls between the school and its neighborhood. By viewing their surroundings as classrooms, students are not only invigorated, but also more motivated to learn the basics and how to think critically about solving problems they and the larger world they inhabit now face. duration 57:57   STEREO TVG
