A feature length documentary about rescuing our public schools.
Could the secret to rescuing our failing public schools lie in the past? Springfield Missouri's Central High School in 1968 launched kids from all social classes into successful lives. While it wasn't perfect, Central did positive things that are missing in many schools today. Things that could address U.S. jobs leaving the country, standards of living falling for the poor and middle class, and false news stories on social media pitting Americans against each other. Can Central High School Save America? offers student, teacher, counselor, and principal perspectives on combining the best education practices of yesterday and today. Applying these practices to give every American student a quality education can help preserve our democracy and ensure our prosperity.
