  • 7:00 am
    Facing Forward: A Student's Story In inner-city Cleveland, 19 out of 20 African-American males, on average, do not graduate from high school. E Prep, a new-wave middle school with old-school values, endeavors to counteract these statistics by holding its students to high standards for behavior and achievement. E Prep's 10-hour school days, jacket-and-tie dress code and silent lunchroom decorum were designed to help inner-city students stand toe-to-toe academically with their affluent suburban peers.
    However, lofty optimism and classroom successes clash frequently with harsher realities, as teachers and administrators battle street-corner attitudes, student attrition and their own exhaustion. This program takes viewers to a cultural battlefield where teachers and administrators strive to transform at-risk youth into self-assured, productive individuals. Hand-held cameras follow the charming but troubled 12-year-old Tyree during a full academic year and beyond to chart E-Prep's impact.
