School Days: Student Tales (#113) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Remember school? It's where kids learn a lot, and make friends for life. It's also a maelstrom of swirling loyalties, where knowledge sometimes comes only after pain. This "Stories from the Stage" looks at school through the eyes of teen storytellers. Cecelia Viverios battles a hidden learning disability that leaves teachers, her parents, and Cecelia herself baffled; Anna Kamens reluctantly welcomes a fourth grade newcomer who struggles socially; and Furquann Syed, teased for his name and Muslim heritage, finds that violent solutions have a down side. Three storytellers, three interpretations of "School Days," hosted by Theresa Okokon.
