WNYC will air Mind The Gap: Why Good Schools are Failing Minority Students

This weekend, WNYC, the nation’s largest public radio station, will air 'Mind The Gap: Why Good Schools are Failing Minority Students'

Nationwide, suburban schools are doing a good job educating white students, but those schools are not getting the same results with black and Latino students. This documentary tells the story of a suburban high school with lots of resources and a diverse student body that is struggling to close the minority achievement gap. Award-winning NPR Reporter Nancy Solomon takes you inside a school to hear a discussion on race in the classroom. Listen as students try to explain what went wrong with their education. Join her at the kitchen table with black middle-class parents who thought that a move to the suburbs would ensure school success. Find out how the school's best teachers motivate their students. Be a fly on the wall in the busy dean's office where kids with discipline problems land.

It will air locally in New York City at AM 820 and can be heard from anywhere via live webstream at http://www.wnyc.org/ on Saturday, October 31 at 2pm and Sunday, November 1 at 8pm.
